About this webinar:

Want to help afterschool STEM blast off in your community?  Looking for tools and tips on how best to convince your stakeholders that afterschool is a critical partner in improving STEM education?  Then this webinar series is for you!  In Part 1, we introduced participants to the FrameWorks Institute’s research-based communications strategies to boost public support for afterschool STEM programs.

In part two of this interactive web series, participants will immerse themselves in the rest of the FrameWorks Institute’s evidence-based reframing strategies for talking effectively with the public about informal STEM learning. We’ll look at why individual success stories can backfire, discuss how to explain the relationship of afterschool programs to classroom learning, and review tested strategies for talking about disparities in STEM education. Join us for an engaging, informative hour of examples, practice, and Q&A. 

You do not need to have joined us for Part 1 to participate in Part 2 of this webinar series!  But you may find it helpful to read more about the first webinar here and watch a recording of part 1 of this two-part webinar series.
