I. Abstract

    Under 54 U.S.C. 100101 (National Park Service Act Organic Act), we 
must preserve America's natural wonders unimpaired for future 
generations, while also making them available for the enjoyment of the 
visitor. The NPS' commitment to future generations includes a 
commitment to engaging children in science at some of the country's 
most beautiful and ecologically intact sites while improving the 
quality of STEM--or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics--
instruction. The study of the After School Place-Based STEM Learning 
Partnership will provide insight into how STEM education programs can 
strengthen students' interest and engagement in STEM, develop skills 
and knowledge around ecological monitoring, and encourage students to 
see themselves as active participants in building scientific knowledge. 
The study is part of an interagency agreement between the U.S. 
Department of Education (ED) and the NPS, and a project implemented in 
partnership with the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), the 21st Century 
Community Learning Center (CCLC), and the National Environmental 
Education Foundation. The study will include a student survey to assess 
the following outcomes:
     Confidence in the ability to participate in environmental 
monitoring and citizen science activities/discussions,
     Interest in pursuing or participating in classes, 
activities or discussions related to general STEM and/or environmental 
science,
     Recognition of the relevance of STEM and environmental 
science to students' lives and communities, and
     Interest in environmental science and/or in pursuing 
additional STEM-related classes, activities and/or careers.

The study sample will include students who participate in STEM 
education programs delivered in partnership with eight national parks 
and their partner schools.
