Bridging the Informal-Formal Science Education Divide

I was recently reading the June 23, 2022 issue of “NSTA Weekly” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the NSTA Blog feature “With, Not For: Why the Distinction Matters” written by Beth Murphy.  

It is important to foster collaboration between organizations and schools, providing professional learning experiences for educators, and implementing program evaluation that supports practitioners to do their best work.  Collaboration provides the opportunity to bridge the informal-formal science education divide.
