In response to a request from Representative Frank Wolf (VA) to the National Science Foundation (NSF) to identify highly successful K-12 schools and programs in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM), the NRC held a workshop in May 2011. The 2-day workshop featured research on STEM-focused schools and practices, and examples of STEM-focused schools. Two reports, based on the workshop, have recently been released. Successful K-12 STEM Education: Identifying Effective Approaches in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics explores what education leaders and policy makers can do to provide high-quality STEM education for all students. Successful STEM Education: A Workshop Summary describes the discussions and presentations from the May workshop. The Board on Science Education and the Board on Testing and Assessment will be participating in an NSF conference on September 19: STEM Smart: Lessons Learned from Schools Successful in STEM . Aimed at national, state, and district science education leaders, the conference will focus on putting the recommendations of the NRC reports into practice.
