IMLS Expands Initiative to Bring STEM Learning to Underserved Students

IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) is providing $1.9 million in new funding from the Department of Education to expand an initiative that introduces underserved young people to STEM-related activities. (It was a pilot project in 2014.) According to the press release, “This national project, now expanded both in scope and scale, will equip [seven] children’s museums and science centers with making activities, resources, tools, and training, enabling them to train up to forty 21st Century Community Learning Centers across eight states, with the goal of reaching up to 1,000 students [during the 2019–2020 school year]. A new survey, part of the third-party evaluation, will assess the outcomes of the project, including changes in interest, skills, and behaviors related to STEM and making among youth participants.”
