Abstract
Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) proposes to develop a nation-wide informal technology education program that integrates math, science, engineering and technology (STEM) through its Think Tek Learning Lab. The goal of the Lab is three-pronged: providing an after-school enrichment program for teens; arousing interest in math and science; and achieving outreach for NASA commercial technologies. The Lab will serve middle/high school students through after-school and Saturday classes, summer institutes, and school visits. The focus of this informal technology learning laboratory includes hands-on experimentation and exploration, design and construction, and interaction with a variety of technologies, scientists, and learning materials. The Lab will be a living NASA outreach spin-off with experiments that showcase real-life NASA commercial technologies. The project will support NASA's efforts to publicize the positive ripple effects that the space funding generates on the domestic front.
