Exemplary Science in Informal Education Settings: Standards-Based Success Stories (e-book)

edited by: Robert E. Yager and John H. Falk

Just as science education doesn’t stop at the schoolhouse door, neither should effective application of the National Science Education Standards. Exemplary Science in Informal Education Settings shows real-world examples of how science education reform has taken hold in museums, science centers, zoos, and aquariums as well as on television, radio, and the internet.

This essay collection—the fifth volume in the Exemplary Science Monograph Series—features 17 informal education programs that were judged to be most successful at increasing participants’ learning. The programs demonstrate how the Standards can be used to inform and improve science education in a wide range of settings and with learners ranging from pre-schoolers to older adults.
