  5. 5. Setting the Stage Emphasis on STEM education in California  Students show less than desirable proficiency in Science and Math as currently measured (NAEP, TIMSS, PISA)  STEM jobs on the rise in time of high unemployment. STEM jobs are the jobs of the future.  Call to action: 1 Million more students prepared to enter STEM field  Interest and engagement key to student motivation in STEM I mportant and Timely  Common Core State Standards  Next Generation Science Standards  After School Division focus on increasing quality
  6. 6. Opportunities in OSTOver 4,500 schools throughout California  98% of schools are in low-income communitiesCapacity to serve about 450,000 students daily  85% of students qualify for school meals programExpanded learning time in a flexible learning Environment  Complementary Support to Core Instructional Day  Supports implementation of the practices of the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards

  10. 10. JumpStarting STEM Student OutcomesOverall student outcomes were relatively flat for scienceand math efficacy, as well as student interest in scienceor science careers.Regression analysis illustrated that those studentswho reported more positive experiences in the afterschool programs (a reflection of program quality)Demonstrated gains in the desired student outcomesDesired student outcomes were associated with qualityrelationships with staff and their peers in the program
  11. 11. Key Take AwaySTEM outcomes are linked to overallprogram quality, and the quality ofrelationships in the program.Achieving desired STEM outcomescannot be separated from youthdevelopment principles of positiverelationship building and generalelements of program quality, specificallyengaging and active learning experiences.
