Grades 9-12, Adult learners

CAST, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and YouthBuild USA are creating a web-based STEM Career Exploration and Readiness Environment (CEE-STEM) that will support opportunities for youth ages 16-24 who are neither in school nor are working, in rebuilding engagement in STEM learning and developing STEM skills and capacities relevant to diverse postsecondary education/training and employment pathways.

CEE-STEM will provide opportunity youth with an ePortfolio to: demonstrate their STEM learning, make connections between classroom and workplace STEM learning, reflect on STEM learning and career interests, explore STEM careers, and take actions to move ahead with STEM career pathways of interest.

The project is implementing design-based research and design thinking to engage YouthBuild students and staff in rapid prototyping to develop the ePortfolio components that include UDL supports, multimedia cases and rubrics. Development and research take place through continuous cycles of design, implementation, analysis and redesign.  The ePortfolio is then tested through an experimental study within YouthBuild programs.
