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…

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…

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…

McGregor, D.; Baskerville, D.; Anderson, D.; Duggan, A. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
Understanding the nature of science (NoS) is perplexing for young children because it is concerned with not only understanding how evidence is generated but also what kind of meanings can be made from information collected. However, acting as a scientist-in-role, making independent decisions about what information to collect and deciding how to go…

Angelone, Samer; Soriguer, Ramón C.; Melendo, Ana – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
Six documentary modes are recognised: poetic, expository, observational, participatory, reflexive and performative. Scientists untrained in filmmaking most often choose the expository mode since it possesses the same traits and conventions as used in most scientific narratives. Yet, this need not be the case given that a new generation of…

Stofer, Kathryn A.; Rujimora, James; Sblendorio, Danielle; Duqueney, Estherland; Tatineni, Meghana; Gaudier, Gabriela – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
University researchers are asked to make their work relevant and accessible to people beyond their research fields, increasingly by undertaking public engagement with science themselves. However, academic outreach often only reaches an already-science-attentive audience through traditional museum visits or lecture-style presentations. Even…

Finkler, Wiebke; Higham, James E.S.; León, Bienvenido; Aitken, Robert – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
This study focuses on the role of science communication for sustainable whale watching management. It uses a pragmatic mixed-method approach to present a critical analysis of the potential role of science communication videos to manage participant expectations. Drawing on 30 years of science research on whale watching the empirical study produces…

Laslo, Esther; Baram-Tsabari, Ayelet – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2019
Although science presents ethical challenges to society, little is known about the ways in which adults express ethical concerns in everyday science-related situations. This study analyzed the ethical expressions in 1079 reader comments to online news coverage of animal experimentation and climate change in Israel. Some forms of ethical concerns…
