Successful K-12 STEM Education:
Identifying Effective Approaches in Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

Providing all students with access to high-quality education in STEM is important to their futures and that of the U.S. What can schools do to meet this goal for their students?

Successful K-12 STEM Education tackles this question, focusing on the science and mathematics parts of STEM and on criteria for identifying effective STEM schools and practices. The report gives an overview of the landscape of K-12 STEM education by considering different school models, highlighting research on effective STEM education practices, and identifying some conditions that promote and limit school- and student-level success in STEM.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 23, 2011 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
