Science Education in Out-of-school Settings

Organisation profile

Engaging in science in out-of-school settings can make important contributions to science understanding among children and adults and may positively influence important life choices. This research group addresses issues related to research in science education in out-of-school contexts including (but not limited to) museums, science centres, aquaria, zoos, botanical gardens, industrial actors, and science competitions. We are interested in how scientific knowledge from the research domain becomes scientific knowledge embodied in the educational milieus in out-of-school settings, and how this scientific knowledge is taken up by visitors.
