Explore It! Science Investigations in Out-of-School Programs: Final Evaluation Report

August 1st, 2005 | EVALUATION

Explore It! Science Investigations in Out-of-School Programs, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), was a collaboration among the Center for Science Education at the Education Development Center (EDC), six science and children museums, after-school centers across the United States, and the National Institute for Out-of-School Time (NIOST). The project primary goals were to develop and implement hands-on, inquiry-based units of activities for out-of-school programs for children ages 8-12 and to develop a support structure for after-school or out-of-school programs with science centers and children's museums. The appendix of this report includes student surveys used in this study.
