Highlights of ‘virtual meeting’ of OST network available on web

Recently, the Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool/Youth Development Network hosted a virtual meeting to share its current work and accomplishments in the core areas of policy, sustainability, quality, as well as to listen to member input and increase member knowledge of state and national efforts for out-of-school time to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education.

Special guest presenters included Dr. Anita Krishnamurthi, Director of STEM Policy for the Afterschool Alliance; Robin Shoop, Director of The Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy; Julia Skolnik, Project Associate-Curriculum Specialist at the Franklin Institute Science Museum and the Free Library of Philadelphia; and Ed Bender, Co-Chair of the Pennsylvania 4-H Science Program Team.

For those unable to join the session, the archived session and slides are now available here.
