About the research

Abstract: This project will encourage teens to develop their science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills in relation to transportation. It will do this by helping grow Go!, a free online magazine for teens published by Iowa State University since 2007. Published six times per school year, Go! Will explicitly incorporate STEM content in three to four articles and one hands-on, STEM-related activity per issue.
