The Alabama STEM Studio for Afterschool Learning is an Afterschool science education initiative developed by program specialists from Auburn University’s College of Education and College of Science and Mathematics (COSAM) in collaboration with the Truman Pierce Institute. TASSAL utilizes a series of hands-on, inquiry based activities that integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) principles in a fun, non-threatening learning environment. Currently due to funding limitations, the TASSAL initiative is intended for 21st Century Community Learning Centers only.
