About this grant

This grant to the Pacific Science Center will support the Robert Noyce Fellowship in Informal STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Learning. The fellowship is a public-private partnership initiative geared toward advancing high quality informal science education, including in afterschool and summer learning programs. This initiative will include: 1) strengthening collaboration between the U.S. Department of Education and other federal agencies in the area of informal STEM learning; 2) working to advance STEM learning in the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program; 3) building on the President’s Educate to Innovate campaign by building collaborations with the corporate, nonprofit, and philanthropic communities; and 4) working with leading researchers to identify priorities in informal STEM learning, including identifying new tools, strategies, and programs that improve STEM learning opportunities.
