June 15-16, 2017

Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, VA

Building the Foundational Skills of the Future Science and Engineering Workforce

The primary goal of the ITEST program is to prepare our nation's youth to participate in the rapidly-changing STEM workforce of the future. For more than a decade, ITEST projects have developed and implemented innovative strategies to engage youth in technology-rich experiences that build their skills for, and increase their awareness of, STEM and STEM-related careers. ITEST projects have reached hundreds of thousands of youth and have made numerous contributions to our understanding of best practices in supporting the development of this workforce. This year’s STELAR ITEST PI & Evaluator Summit will explore the foundational skills needed to prepare youth to fully participate in the future science and engineering workforce.
