The new report Next Generation STEM Learning For All: Envisioning Advances Based on NSF Supported Research highlights the ways in which STEM offers traditionally underrepresented groups increased opportunities for individual success, calling access to STEM education an issue of social justice. The report comes out of the forum of the same name, which was organized by EDC and SRI International for the National Science Foundation (NSF).In addition
ITEST Data Brief Volume 3, Issue 1, March 2016 This data brief provides information on the composition of ITEST project participants, what activities they engage in, in what settings, and what projects feel contributes to their project's success based on projects submissions to the 2014-2015 ITEST Management Information System (MIS) Annual Survey.
This paper presents the design of the Design-Based Information Technologies Learning Experiences (DITLE) project, a large K-12 STEM outreach project supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). It impacts IT education among six public high schools in a metropolitan area. The designed activities of the project are presented and shared with the education research community to invoke discussion. The project is currently in its first year of a three-year grant period. The lessons and experiences learned so far are also summarized for discussion.
On November 9th, 2015 Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) and SRI International, with the support of the National Science Foundation (NSF), hosted a one-day Forum on “Next Generation STEM Learning for All” in Washington D.C.
The CS10K Community and the STEM Learning and Research Center (STELAR) held a #cs10k #ce15 Broadening Participation in STEM Education Twitter chat on Monday, October 5 from 8-9pm ET. Our chat discussed how to bridge the gender gap and increase opportunities for women in computer science.

National Science Foundation - Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) Program SolicitationOpportunities
ITEST is a program that promotes PreK-12 student interests and capacities to participate in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and information and communications technology (ICT) workforce of the future. To achieve this objective, ITEST supports the development, implementation, and selective spread of innovative strategies for engaging students in experiences that:
STELAR hosted this one-day workshop on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, at Tuskegee University (Tuskegee, AL), which was designed for people who have not been previously funded through the National Science Foundation's ITEST (Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers) Program.
About the Annual Meeting
The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. It is a showcase for ground-breaking, innovative studies in a diverse array of areas -- from early education through higher education, from digital learning to second language literacy. It is where to encounter ideas and data that will shape tomorrow's education practices and policies, and where to connect with leading thinkers from the U.S. and around the world.
In May 2015, seventeen ITEST projects presented videos in the 2015 National Science Foundation Teaching and Learning Video Showcase. Organized by TERC, the showcase contained 112 videos produced by NSF-funded projects associated with one of these resource centers: ARC, CADRE, CAISE, CIRCL, CS10K, MSPNet, and STELAR.
