Mapping Informal Science Institutions onto the Science Education Landscape


"In August 2005, a group of formal and informal practitioners and researchers met at the CILS Bay Area Institute in San Francisco to discuss what we know and need to know to better understand how informal science institutions can effectively inspire, augment, and reinforce science learning for school children. In particular, the group sought to identify systemic and institutional structures that impede or advance opportunities for informal science institutions to strengthen science in school and after-school programs."
