August 8, 2006
- NSB Commission on 21st Century Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
- The National Science Board Commission met for the first time in August 2006. The driving question that resulted, and will shape the rest of the Commission's work is: "What should 21st Century STEM education look like?"
- What Works: Lessons from Science
- Aggressively documenting and telling stories of STEM programs having demonstrable success in strengthening student learning in mathematics and science is a collective responsibility. The “Education Forum” in Science has presented three essays describing well-established and carefully-assessed programs that illustrate creative solutions to pressing needs outlined in Rising Above the Gathering Storm.
- Convocation on Rising Above the Gathering Storm
- Norman R. Augustine, Chair of the “Committee on Prospering the Global Economy of the 21st Century” that produced the influential 2005 National Academies report, Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future, met with members of the NSB Commission on 21st Century Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics during their first meeting, August 3 - 4, 2006.
