The Afterschool Alliance, the Space Science Institute’s STAR Library Network (STAR Net), and the Global Family Research Project aim to support the growth of STEM partnerships between public libraries and afterschool and summer learning programs. In this session, we will synthesize projects and research conducted across the fields of out-of-school time, informal STEM education, family engagement, and community partnerships, in order to provide participants with actionable ideas and promising practices. Tap into a wealth of resources from the afterschool field, including the annual "Lights on Afterschool" advocacy campaign and reports. Learn how to start and sustain partnerships with afterschool providers.
