Building Blocks of STEM Act Passes House
Repost from Afterschool STEM Hub
In April, the Building Blocks of STEM Act (S737, HR1665), a bipartisan bill to support research in STEM education focused on early childhood and elementary-aged students was reintroduced in the House by Reps. Stevens (D-Mich.) and Baird (R-Ind.). We're happy to report that the legislation passed the House on July 23 and now awaits passage in the Senate. At the moment, the Senate and House bills vary slightly, meaning that both houses would ultimately have to conference the bill and agree on the same language if it's to ultimately pass Congress and be sent to the president.
