The National Science Digital Library (NSDL) is an online portal for education and research on learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The NSDL Youth Resources project (NYR) is designed to increase utilization of the NSDL by middle school students and their teachers by adding relevant, high-quality and engaging content. The project focuses on the quality, accessibility, and interactivity of content to determine what student’s identify and conceptualize as high-quality online STEM content. In addition, the project focuses on intended uses of this content, and the key vocabulary student’s use to find STEM resources.
