Through this Learn and Serve America program, the CSU developed innovative approaches to engage students, campuses and communities in STEM service learning that resulted in:
- Over 7,800 K-12 students participated in STEM activities facilitated by CSU students and faculty to spark their interest in STEM.
- More than 60 CSU faculty, staff, students and alumni served as volunteers, judges, interpreters and facilitators at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
- 18 CSU faculty participated in an Engaged Department Institute for Sciences and 100% reported increased competence in their ability to incorporate service learning into their STEM courses.
- We increased the number of STEM service-learning courses offered annually by 179, from 284 to 463.
- We increased the number of students participating in STEM service-learning courses annually by 2,098, from 5,750 to 7,848.
