STEM

Now more than ever, it’s vitally important that students are immersed in STEM Learning Opportunities. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) helps students develop the problem solving and critical thinking skills that will fuel future innovation, exploration, culture and even survival.

Afterschool can provide valuable opportunities for students to explore STEM, and we are here to help your program succeed in STEM Learning! Our diverse collection of resources is here to meet you and your students where you are and provides the support you need to deliver quality programming to your students at any age.

Million Girls Moonshot

The Million Girls Moonshot seeks to re-imagine who can engineer, who can build, who can make. It will inspire and prepare the next generation of innovators by engaging one million more girls in STEM learning opportunities through afterschool and summer programs over the next 5 years.

IF / THEN Collection

The IF/THEN® Collection is the largest free resource of its kind dedicated to increasing access to authentic and relatable images of real women in STEM.

Here in this digital library, you will find thousands of photos, videos and other assets that authentically represent women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
