Science Education

Virtual Issue

This Virtual Issue presents empirical research that blurs the boundary between learning sciences and informal science education research in an effort to advance key issues of importance to education about the nature of learning and engagement in out-of-school settings. This issue has a special focus on studies providing insights into the design and facilitation of learning in out-of-school time.

The six articles, introduction, and commentary examine the opportunities, challenges, and barriers that exist when bridging the learning sciences and informal science learning fields. The issue s articles explore three themes to advance educational research: (a) applying learning science theory to the design of informal science education spaces, (b) designing for equitable engagement to support out-of-school learning, and (c) facilitating social science learning of families.
