Chisari, Lucía Beatriz; Bakker, A.; Akkerman, S. F. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
School-university partnerships can be fertile environments for collaboration by educators and researchers. So far, studies of these partnerships have mostly focused on identifying partnership challenges and presenting them as difficulties to be prevented or solved. In this case study, we examine challenges in relation to the partnership's future…

Harwell, Todd A.; Low, Russanne; Mattheis, Allison; Riedinger, Kelly; Fischer, Heather – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Citizen science, a field and practice that commonly involves 'non experts' engaging in scientific activities, is an avenue of science engagement that commonly results in increased scientific knowledge, literacy, and skills for the volunteers that participate. In recent years there have been increasing efforts to better understand the myriad…

Wilkinson, Clare; Milani, Elena; Ridgway, Andy; Weitkamp, Emma – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
As the ecosystem of actors communicating science has become more complex, there is a need to understand the motivations and deterrents of those involved in the communication of science, technology and health topics. This article reports on a survey of 465 communication actors based in seven European countries. The findings suggest strong…

Wang, Wei; Zhao, Yongyong; Wu, Yenchun Jim; Goh, Mark – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
This study analyzed the influence of rhetoric in the endorsement text on the willingness of the crowd to participate in citizen science projects. Four categories of endorsers were studied: professors, students, industrial researchers, and amateur researchers. Using 1243 endorsement texts from 543 citizen science projects as the corpus, the effects…

Nicolaisen, Line Bruun; Ulriksen, Lars; Holmegaard, Henriette T. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Science capital has proved a valuable concept for understanding a person's science-related resources and the inequities linked to participation in science education. The concept was developed in the UK and has since been applied worldwide. In this paper, we investigate the potential of the concept in Denmark. Here science capital meets a concept…

Setioko, Wahyu; Ding, Lin – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
This study explores parents' views of science as a family sociocultural background that influences how parents support children's science talk as they engage in a science activity together at home. We focus on Indonesian families as they have distinct sociocultural characteristics that may yield different parent-child interactions than their…

Bennett, Nichole; Dudo, A.; Besley, J. C. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Science communication training programs aim to provide scientists with the skills and confidence to interface with the public about their research. But past research suggests science communication training programs lack strategy, focusing instead on narrow skill-building. Science communication fellowships may differ from other training programs in…

Costa e Silva, Elsa; Pinto, Sandra – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
In recent years, there has been an increasing call for more public engagement of scientists, and this happens in parallel with a rising internationalization of research. Willingness to communicate is explained by attitudes (ideas and perceptions about science communication), but is also the result of a combination of personal and contextual…

De Gioannis, Elena; Pasin, Gian Luca; Squazzoni, Flaminio – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Exposing women and girls to female role models is considered essential to break down gender-stereotypical beliefs on STEM interest and engagement. However, evidence remains controversial regarding the efficacy of these interventions. Here, we provide a scoping review of fifty-seven empirical studies that considers information about: (1) research…

Butcher, Madeleine; Cohen, Elizabeth L.; Kunkle, Christine E.; Totzkay, Daniel – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Evidence suggests that participating in geek pop culture (e.g. fandoms, digital gaming, live action role playing, board gaming, etc.) can enhance women's interest in STEM by increasing their STEM-related efficacy. This study proposed that this effect hinges on the type of social experiences that women have in geek culture. Inclusive experiences…

Munoz-Rubke, Felipe; Almuna, Felipe; Duemler, Jaclyn; Velásquez, Eloísa – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic revealed that many countries have failed to provide the general population with the cognitive tools to thoroughly understand and cope with a global health crisis. While scientists and leaders worldwide have struggled to discover ways to contain the spread of the virus, this difficult task has become overwhelming due to the…

García-Guerrero, Miguel; Lewenstein, Bruce V. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Science Recreation Workshops (SRW) are engaging activities intended to create scientific experiences for participants, who play with natural phenomena while they explore, discover, discuss, and learn about them. They take people into a first-hand scientific adventure. SRW's do not demand a lot of resources to develop, that is why SRW's groups can…

Yeo, Sara K.; Su, Leona Y.-F.; Cacciatore, Michael A.; Zhang, Jennifer Shiyue; McKasy, Meaghan – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Humor is widespread in communication and its use in the context of science is no exception. Although science jokes are pervasive on social media, we are only beginning to understand the mechanisms through which humor affects people's attitudes, opinions, and perceptions of scientific topics. Here, we add to our understanding of how funny science…

Rende, K.; Jones, M. Gail; Refvem, Emma; Carrier, Sarah J.; Ennes, Megan – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2023
Extensive research shows that non-formal science education programs effectively build and sustain long-term interest and persistence in science careers. Framed by expectancy-value theory, this study examined the academic and career outcomes of students who participated in a multi-year volunteer program at a science museum. Twenty-one participants…
