Step Up Your STEM Game at NAA17

Did you know that The National Afterschool Association is a great resource for STEM professional development? In a recent survey of the afterschool community, 98% of respondents listed NAA as a place to get valuable resources and information to improve STEM offerings and teaching practices.

This year, NAA's Annual Convention, the premier learning, networking, and professional development event for the field of afterschool will feature 30+ dedicated STEM workshops, a general session focused on STEM and leadership, a learning expo with exhibitors sharing STEM products and services, and more!

In 2016, Convention participants who attended STEM-related workshops indicated:

  • an increased knowledge on how to access STEM resources and participants
  • increased confidence in delivery of STEM experiences
  • increased confidence in communicating with schools, families, and communities about the importance of STEM learning in out-of-school time.
