The National Center on Time & Learning (NCTL) released a new report about its work with five expanded-time schools, each paired with a science-focused community-based organization, to embed new, imaginative STEM programming in a redesigned and expanded school day. Each of the schools, which received a modest planning grant and technical assistance coaching from NCTL, have created their own program model and way of engaging students. Together, they enable over 1,200 students to participate in exciting, inquiry-based learning activities and projects that augment their interest in and knowledge about science and engineering. The project was supported by the Noyce Foundation. Read the report here.
