Abstract : The Community STEM Outreach Program aimed to expand the Youth Exploring Science (YES) program at the Saint Louis Science Center (SLSC) across three dimensions: programmatic expansion, stakeholder expansion, and national expansion. Over three years, YES leaders integrated several new techniques to evaluate and refine a successful program. The attached report summarizes the final state of the project's 14 objectives, identifies strengths and challenges encountered during implementation, and provides evaluation documents that will be used going forward to disseminate a program development process designed to build STEM youth programs that address a community's unique needs and assets.
