Plastic Waste and Mental Health: How Young People
Build on Informal Learning to Make Change in Their School and
Los Angeles Convention Center - 505
We’ll unpack examples of young people learning across
different settings, showing how formal and informal educators can collaborate to
support science engagement and community involvement.
Takeaways: 1. Young people bring their learning across settings, making connections between the practices and activities they do in informal and formal spaces; 2. When educators partner and coordinate experiences across settings, they can better support young peoples’ learning pathways, identity development, and promote community involvement; and 3. This session will offer examples of how young people have brought their learning and made connections across settings, which will highlight opportunities for educators to design better partnerships in the future to support young people in the future.
