Afterschool programs often serve youth ages 5 to 14. Recognizing the different ages and stages of youth and applying this to science, engineering, and technology (SET) programming is critical to achieving desired youth outcomes. In this session, staff will review developmental stages of afterschool youth and learn how to do SET with mixed-age groups. Applying the National Science Education Standards to age-appropriate practice will also be covered.
