Badge Ecosystem

The framework for the Community STEM Badging Ecosystem is based on Project Exploration’s Youth Science Matrix (YSM).  The YSM was developed to recognize longitudinal participation and evaluates STEM education through a youth development lens.  Though not perfect, the YSM proved to be the most encompassing after evaluating many frameworks including the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core and 21st Century Standards. Please find links to the YSM and the accompanying white paper below.
