STEM in Afterschool: Lead the Charge at NAA18!

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 percent of respondents listed NAA as a place to get valuable resources and information to improve STEM offerings and teaching practices.

The NAA 2018 Annual Convention—taking place in Atlanta, March 18 – 21, 2018—will feature more than 30 dedicated STEM workshops, a general session focused on STEM and leadership, a learning expo with exhibitors sharing STEM products and services, and more!

Previous Convention participants who attended STEM-related workshops indicated:

  • 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.
