You can also check out the inaugural issue of our Afterschool STEM Quarterly Research Review! In the Review, we provide a synopsis of afterschool STEM research and offer implications for practice, research, and policy. In sharing research updates and discovering knowledge gaps, our hope is that awareness, investment in, and support of the afterschool STEM field can continue to grow, learn, and adapt to better serve our youth.
