While most can agree that STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) experiences outside of school can be exciting and engaging for young people, there is much that isn’t known about its impact on short-term and long-term learning.

How do you measure this kind of learning?

Today’s smartphones are designed to entertain and are increasingly marketed to young adults as leisure devices. Not surprisingly, research suggests that young adults most often use their phones for entertainment purposes rather than for school or work.  

Kent State University will hold its Fall Commencement ceremonies for the Kent Campus at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13, at the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center (MAC Center).
