AfterschoolThe nation’s leading voice for afterschool, the Afterschool Alliance is the only organization dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of afterschool programs and advocating for more afterschool investments. Afterschool Alliance has many STEM resources for educators, families and youth.

We’re surrounded by technology—smart phones, tablets, computers, video games, mobile apps, etc.—and today’s youth must learn how to use it effectively. But what if there’s a grander vision? Let’s empower and equip students with the knowledge and tools to become creators of technology! Providing students with the tools and knowledge they need to become creators of technology, not just consumers, is a growing priority for afterschool programs across the country. Many programs are building from the ground up and running into issues like finding the right curriculum or qualified staff teach computer science. Join Sarah Carter, from SciGirls, and Ricarose Roque, of the University of Colorado, Boulder, for a recorded webinar on overcoming these obstacles, from picking the right tools to teach computer science after school to training program facilitators to use them and beyond.
