Attached to this message are:

  1. The NAS Board on Science Education is holding a series of “Stakeholder Meetings” to discuss new developments in science education standards.  Materials attached.
  2. Information on a new database of STEM programs compiled by the Coalition for Science After School.   All of the details are in the attached email.

We will be sending along details for a face-to-face Coalition meeting in the second half of October in the next week or two.    Always feel free to send us information and announcements you would like to share.  The Coalition’s membership has now grown to more than 1,000 individuals and organizations.
