McClain, Lucy R.; Zimmerman, Heather Toomey – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
This study investigates how scientist-led educational programs, held in libraries, can make local science issues relevant to families. Given the need for an educated citizenry, it is important to explore if scientists -- as learning facilitators -- can use educational strategies to engage intergenerational groups. We view family learning from a…
