Halonen, Julia; Aksela, Maija – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2018
Non-formal science education means goal-oriented learning outside of school. The use of out of school learning environments (e.g. science camps) has been found to increase motivation and interest in natural sciences. In this study, the relevance of non-formal science education in science camps has been analyzed from the perspectives of children…
