Apply research-based collaboration strategies to enhance your science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities and programs. Collaboration enables professionals across programs and communities to generate and carry out creative solutions and strategies that maximize benefit beyond what one could accomplish alone, and research suggests that by creating collaborations among organizations committed to engaging youth in STEM, we can improve youth STEM experiences. 

In this webinar recording, learn about the NGCP collaboration model, exemplary practices in collaboration, and examples of successful collaborations in the NGCP network.
