Web Seminar: NSTA Science Update: Making Science Learning Lifelong, Lifewide and Lifedeep: What We Know About the Importance of Out-of-School Science Learning, October 9, 2019

Web Seminar

Students learning outside.Join us on Wednesday, October 9, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm Eastern Time to learn about the importance of out-of-school science learning experiences.  The recent federal STEM strategic plan, America’s Strategy for STEM Education, states:

Creative, blended educational opportunities that combine elements from traditionally separate approaches to learning—e.g., formal-plus-informal, career and technical education-plus-college preparatory—and are aligned across the scope of learning partners—result in learners gaining and building their skills in ways that work best.

As implied in this statement, there is a vast amount of evidence for the value of out-of-school science learning experience.

Join Dennis Schatz, NSTA President and longtime expert in out-of-school STEM learning, to explore the evidence for how out-of-school STEM learning is a key factor in developing our youths’ interest in science.  Then explore ways that educators have connected in-school and out-of-school experiences to enhance STEM learning.
