Federal Agencies Collaborate to Improve After-School Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education

In an effort to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning in after school, the U.S. Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) is fostering collaborative partnerships with other federal agencies. Through these partnerships, the Department will expand existing pilot programs, which will provide students with more opportunities for accessing high-quality science education in after school programs. Working with organizations such as NASA, National Park Service, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Department hopes to increase the number of participating 21st CCLC programs nationwide. The Department acknowledges that expanded learning programs play an integral role in ensuring that students have access to interactive STEM learning.
