Yonai, Ella; Blonder, Ron – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
A one-hour guided discourse was designed to support developing the outreach communication skills of physics experts with middle school students. The participants consisted of 12 physics researchers who conduct research in the field of nanoscale science and technology (NST). The guided discourse consisted of a professional development task for…

Stylinski, Cathlyn Davis; Peterman, Karen; Phillips, Tina; Linhart, Jenna; Becker-Klein, Rachel – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
Skill-based outcomes play a prominent role in citizen science experiences as they are situated directly between the dual, intertwining goals of advancing science learning and science research. Regular and transparent assessment of volunteers' science inquiry skills can support these goals, but we lack a comprehensive understanding of how these…

Canovan, Cherry – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
Science festivals are a rapidly-growing phenomenon worldwide, and many such events host trips by school parties. However, what type of learning takes place on these visits, and how effective it is, is an area that merits more academic study. This paper investigates these questions from the perspective of three groups -- teachers, pupils and…

Allen, Sue; Kastelein, Kate; Mokros, Jan; Atkinson, Jennifer; Byrd, Scott – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
We describe the research and development of an NSF-funded, five-year experimental program to strengthen informal (out-of-school) STEM learning by youth in five rural communities. The central component of the model was a cadre of community members known as 'STEM Guides' who were hired to work as brokers between youth and the STEM learning resources…

Yoon, Jiyoon; Kim, Kyoung Jin; Koo, Katie – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
This study was to design and explore the effects of an enrichment program on the leadership, attitude, and motivation of ethnic minority gifted and talented students who want to be scientists and engineers in the future. Ten gifted and talented students participated in this study, Youth Science and Technology Leadership Camp (YSTLC). A leadership…

McKinley-Hicks, Megan – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
This paper highlights an investigation of how middle school students responded to a theatre performance designed to portray science as a humanistic and relatable endeavour that youth -- similar to the youth in the audience -- engage in during their everyday lives. The play included in this study was generated as a part of a design research project…

Cole, Laura B.; Lindsay, G.; Akturk, A. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
The choice to create or renovate museum buildings to green building standards is a growing trend for science museums. With access to green facilities comes the potential to extend informal science learning into the three-dimensional architectural environment. To examine how and if museums with green buildings interpret their buildings for the…

Bisbee O'Connell, Kari; Keys, Brianna; Storksdieck, Martin; Rosin, Mark – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
Dedicated science learning spaces such as science museums, science cafes, or science media attract mostly those who seek out science learning experiences. This self-selection represents a major challenge for broadening participation in informal science learning (ISL). In this study, we examine an approach to ISL that aims at reaching audiences who…

García-Guerrero, Miguel; Lewenstein, Bruce V. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
The main goal for Science Recreation Workshops (SRWs) is to build communities that create meaningful experiences, while participants engage with science in a practical manner. This triggers processes where acting and knowing go hand-in-hand to involve each person as a whole. This requires physical, intellectual and emotional interaction to…

Wang, Guoyan; Wang, Lingfei; Ye, Zi – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
Tao Xingzhi was the initiator of science education in China. He initiated the 'marrying science with the public' movement in 1931, which formed the starting point of modern science education in China. The two cores of the movement are science popularization and saving the nation through science education. Looking back at the history of nearly…

Gupta, Rupanwita; Voiklis, John; Rank, Shelley J.; Dwyer, Joseph de la Torre; Fraser, John; Flinner, Kate; Nock, Kathryn – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2020
Global interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) literacy necessitates studying public perceptions of the STEM learning ecology -- the spectrum of settings where people encounter STEM. By expanding on the STEM learning ecosystem focused on youth's structured learning, we explore settings where lifelong learners encounter STEM…

Mangan, Jennifer M.; Newman, David; Doss, Kerlin B.; Virani, Shanil N. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
In this exploratory study, we looked at the effect adding a choreographed song to camp had on middle-school aged campers' retention of two concepts: order of the planets with increasing distance from the Sun, and phases of the Moon listed in the correct order. We conducted pre- and post-assessments on these questions for multiple years of the…

Grimberg, B. Irene; Williamson, Kathryn; Key, Joey Shapiro – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
The recent discovery and ongoing detection of Einstein's predicted gravitational waves offers an exciting opportunity for engaging the general public in science. In order to reach a wide range of people with different science-art identities, levels of physics expertise, age, and gender, the "Celebrating Einstein" festival merges science,…

More children than ever before are conceived with the use of assisted reproductive technologies and many are raised in families that are structurally different from most. Research on the experiences of children growing up in diverse families has shown that children may face disapproval, a lack of understanding, and in some cases, bullying by those…

Yuan, Shupei; Dudo, Anthony; Besley, John C. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
Scientific societies play an important role in scientists' career development and can have an impact on scientific advancement. The current study explores scientific societies' view of and support for public engagement. Interviews with key actors of 21 US-based scientific societies suggest that societies recognize the value of public engagement…
