Webinar: Learning Science Outside the Classroom

March 26, 2011

Education Week is offering a free webinar this month on a great topic that may interest parents, teachers and principals:

Learning Science Outside the Classroom

Tuesday, April 19, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time.

As concern mounts about the lackluster level of student achievement in science, it has become clear that schools can’t tackle the challenge alone. Nor should they. Opportunities abound outside the classroom to learn about science—and inspire a passion for it. Zoos and science museums, science competitions, robotics clubs, and online games are just a few of the options out there to engage young people. Experts say that so-called informal science learning is gaining wider recognition and becoming part of the national dialogue on how to advance public understanding of science.

Two experts join Education Week to discuss the evolving work in informal science learning—what we know about its impact, what it looks like in practice, the potential, and the challenges.
