|Abstract:||We report on the first two years’ of data for a longitudinal study about the impact of a STEM-based high school OST program on career interests. Quasi-experimental survey data from 132 youth across two annual cohorts is analyzed. Results show the treatment group (program alumni) dropped by 10% while the control group’s STEM career interest dropped by 34% after their first year of college. Results suggest this program’s impact may extend into early college experiences.|
