The NASA Summer of Innovation (SoI) Project FY2013 will engage and support external partners in the delivery of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) opportunities to youth in underrepresented populations through a summer camp/summer learning program. The intent is to increase interest and participation in STEM. The NASA SoI FY2013 project will focus on rising 6th through 8th grade students. This clearance request pertains to the administration of parent surveys, youth surveys, and teacher focus groups. The data collected will enable NASA to (1) evaluate the program model for improvement opportunities, and (2) collect outcome data to assess the program model's effectiveness in meeting the intended objectives. Surveys are designed to obtain the minimum information required to meet study objectives.
