Location (optional): 

The STEM Effect project is a collaborative effort led by the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Education Development Center (EDC), and the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP), to engage cultural organizations around the United States in developing a Collaborative Action Agenda for better understanding the mid- and long-term impacts of informal STEM programs for girls.

The project team engaged cultural organizations and other stakeholders to synthesize their experiences and approaches with the existing research literature on girls in STEM, identify and refine a set of research and questions and best practices, examine the roadblocks to research, and find opportunities and capacities for gathering and analyzing data needed to understand mid- and long-term impact. 

Join The STEM Effect team to discuss creative approaches to better understand the mid- and long-term impacts of informal STEM programs for girls, and methods for measuring them.
