Online Chat: Informal Science Education

This is just a reminder to our readers that EdWeek is hosting an online chat tomorrow, Tuesday, at 1 p.m. Eastern, on the role of informal science activities in education. What activities are we talking about? They could include everything from trips to zoos, museums, and science centers to TV shows, films, computer games, and talks between parents and children.

Our guests are two experts in the field: Heidi Schweingruber of the National Research Council, and Andrew Shouse of the University of Washington's Institute for Science and Mathematics Education. See this story I wrote on a major study released by the research council earlier this year, which both our guests worked on, for background.

So get your questions ready. To view the chat, or sign up for an e-mail reminding you to do so, go to this site.
