How Out-of-School Time Programs Help Youth Excel

Wednesday, October 17, 2018, 2 PM Eastern (1 PM Central)

Learn how implementing an experiential learning model in STEM experiences that focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) helps youth excel. Research has demonstrated that sustained and well-integrated SEL engages youth and improves their achievement. You will leave this webinar with activities you can use to engage youth in SEL through STEM experiences, and resources from Click2SciencePD to train staff and volunteers to develop these two competencies:

  1. Facilitating Inclusive Learning Environments
  2. Encouraging Collaborative STEM Work

Encouraging Collaborative STEM Work

Frontline staff and volunteers will understand that collaboration and interaction are necessary in science and engineering learning experiences. They will be able to effectively facilitate collaborative STEM learning experiences.
  • Portray science as a collaborative effort that involves groups of people working together.
  • Design STEM activities for youth to practice cooperation and collaboration.
  • Directly teach what collaborative behavior looks and sounds like.
  • Engage all learners in STEM activities.

Asking Purposeful Questions

Out-of-school time leaders can have a unique impact on the science, technology, engineering, and math skills of school-age children. This lesson is one of 20 Click2Science lessons designed to help frontline staff facilitate STEM experiences. It features interactive experiences, handouts, and videos that will nurture the ability to ask purposeful questions, enhancing a child's STEM learning. It includes both basic and "stretch" information about intentional question techniques. In this lesson, you will learn strategies for developing STEM practices and mindsets in addition to the skill of asking purposeful questions.

This October, 4‑H and Google will launch an exciting National Youth Science Day challenge, Code Your World, inviting kids to get involved in computer science (CS) through hands-on doing. The national NYSD celebration kicks off October 1, and coding events can take place all throughout October.

Code Your World is a four-part challenge that teaches kids ages 8-14 to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction.
