Mark Lewis: “STEM is applied curiosity” The drive to know and drive to create. #stemafterschool
How do we define success in education? One option: Gallup surveys on engagement fm 5th grade to college grads to employees #STEMafterschool
@FrameWorksInst Looking forward to session. Interested in transferrable skills and engagement; concerned about uneven demand for STEM jobs
Summer/evening jobs should be reinforced as learning opportunities that support life/work (transferrable skills). #stemafterschool
If some STEM occupations increase 45% and others lose 15%: that’s an average of 15%. Not enough. Need deeper insights. #stemafterschool
We need to tease STEM apart into its *very* different career groups. Mismatching -> disengagement (esp young women & girls) #stemafterschool
Girls and minorities thrive in experiential learning. Traditional passive instruction can be seen as form of discrimination #stemafterschool
Are there international rankings that capture innovation & creativity, above and beyond subject areas like math & science? #stemafterschool
What are STEM skills? How are they different from skills needed across life and work? Seeking a link to definitions. #STEMafterschool

Excellent insight into the benefits of coding bootcamps … and what’s missing.
@basecamp In some projects we have many text documents, so organization is very important. Folders would make a real difference, too.
@basecamp How do I sort text documents by title as the default, rather than last updated?
