A Criteria for Quality STEM/STEAM in San Diego

A Criteria for Quality STEM/STEAM in San Diego (SDQC) was created to support the growing number of K-12 STEM/STEAM schools and programs as they implement integrated STEM/STEAM learning experiences in all K-12 classrooms.

This tool may serve as a framework to facilitate inter-segmental discussion on program quality indicators.

Across the Nation, K-12 STEM/STEAM programs and schools are proliferating in response to education, policy, and business reports supporting expansion and improvements in STEM/STEAM education. School and district personnel, after school program providers, community members, business partners, parents, and STEM/STEAM professionals may find this SDQC tool useful to ultimately provide measurable program outcomes.
