A Critical Analysis of Faculty-Developed Urban K-12 Science Outreach Programs
Miranda, Rommel J.; Hermann, Ronald S.
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v7 n1 p109-114 Sum 2010
In this article, the authors provide an overview and critically analyze three successful faculty-developed urban K-12 science outreach programs. They consider a successful outreach program as one that has been sustained for at least five years after initial funding, and has provided empirically-based research findings from the program. Additionally, the authors review each program from these three vantage points: (1) broader impacts on students and teachers; (2) program structure for participants; and (3) program assessment. The authors offer recommendations to help guide other higher education faculty interested in developing K-12 science outreach programs in urban settings. More specifically, this article seeks to determine answers to these questions: (1) What are the broader impacts of faculty-developed K-12 science outreach programs on teachers and students in urban school settings?; (2) How are faculty-developed K-12 science outreach programs structured specifically for teachers and students in urban school settings?; and (3) How are faculty-developed urban K-12 science outreach programs assessed?
