About the Project

In order to inform a consensus study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), Education Development Center is compiling a compendium of successfully scaled-up preK-12 STEM education programs and initiatives, including those involving computer and data science. The consensus study will be shared broadly with federal, state, and local agencies and other research institutions looking for successful scale-up practices and recommendations to address the challenges that hinder successful implementation of promising, evidence-based PreK-12 STEM education innovations.

Inclusion in the compendium will benefit programs by:

  • Highlighting the program as a successful preK-12 STEM initiative
  • Sharing information about the program with a broad audience of stakeholders
  • Ensuring that the program is included in discussions regarding successful STEM innovations

What Types of Programs Will Be Included?

Programs will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Connected to preK12-formal education
  • Focus on at least one STEM discipline, including computer and data science
  • Have undergone an external evaluation or peer review process to provide evidence of success
  • Have successfully scaled
