Do you provide STEM in your Afterschool program?

Hello NJ STEM Providers,

Please consider completing the survey below.
It is a chance to show some national STEM education funders that New Jersey is at the forefront of STEM enrichment opportunities during its out-of-school time programming.
If we can draw attention to the work we are currently doing, it may help us bring additional dollars to the state to continue and expand our efforts in STEM.
The survey is targeting programs that serve middle and high school youth.

In addition to helping our statewide cause, you’ll also be entered to win Staples gift cards to purchase supplies for your program.

Good things are happening in the Garden State for youth  and we need to let the people with the money know about it.
Thank you all in advance for taking time to complete this survey.

MOST-Science Survey

Dear [Out-of-School-Time Education Provider],

We’re inviting you to put your youth programs on the map!

MOST-Science is a nation-wide study funded by the National Science Foundation and the Noyce Foundation. We are collecting data on science and engineering-focused out-of-school-time programs across the country – and we want to make sure we hear about yours.

We recently released an online questionnaire that you can find at:

The questionnaire asks for details about your middle and high school-aged youth programs, including who participates, how much time youth spend in your program, and what kinds of activities they do.

One out of every 20 people who fills out the questionnaire will win a $50 gift certificate to your choice of either Staples (get needed supplies for your own program!) or (donate supplies to a classroom in need!)

Most importantly, however, by filling out the questionnaire you will:

–          Highlight your organization and its youth programs to our research team

–          Help to identify common needs and challenges for youth OST science programs

–          Contribute to a study that will inform funders, policy-makers, researchers and other program providers about the great work in this community and the needs that remain to be addressed

–          Support development of future research studies to examine the development, education and career outcomes for youth who participate in OST science programs.

If you have any questions or would like more information about MOST-Science, please check out our website at:, find us on Facebook at:, or e-mail:

We hope to capture information on as many programs as possible. So, you might receive this e-mail more than once, or it might be received by multiple people in your organization. You may want to check with your colleagues to decide who is the best person to fill out the questionnaire.
And please feel free to forward this e-mail to any other programs you think should be on the map!
