Research2Practice is a free web resource containing summaries of recent peer-reviewed science education research. Since launching in June, the site has added dozens of new briefs as well as synthesis papers on identity and learning as well as on science education and cultural diversity. You can log on for free, browse, search, and save briefs that are relevant to your work. The research represents a broad spectrum of studies in both formal and informal settings. The site is funded by the National Science Foundation, and developed by researchers at the Exploratorium, King's College London, and the University of Washington. View External Website
As concern mounts that U.S. students lack sufficient understanding of science and related fields, it has become increasingly clear that schools cannot tackle the challenge alone. This special report explores the field often called, informal science education, which is gaining broader recognition for its role in helping young people acquire scientific knowledge and skills. Opportunities abound outside the classroom to learn about science, and to inspire a passion for it. Zoos and science museums, robotics clubs, science competitions, and online games are just a few of the options to engage American youths. Education Week reporters examine what informal science education looks like in practice, and what we know about its impact, its potential, and the challenges it faces.View External Website
