S.T.E.M. Initiatives. Research Brief
Anderson, David
Principals' Partnership
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) initiatives represent an extensive and expanding movement across American education. Nationally, funding for K-12 STEM programs increased from $700 million to almost $1 billion from 2005 to 2007 alone (US DOE, Report of the Academic Competitiveness Council, 2007, p. 51). Although there is a dearth of high quality evaluation of existing STEM programs, current research has identified a set of characteristics of effective STEM programs that are outlined in this research brief. While there are few programs that meet all of these criteria, there are numerous notable programs implemented at the national, state, and school levels. (Contains 24 online resources.)
