Informal learning, science centres, and social aspects of science education

Projects may address aspects of the history, function, strengths and weaknesses of science centres and other endeavours designed to promote science learning in informal contexts; creative approaches to science teaching that incorporate science communication theory and methods; and studies of students' experiences within formal science education.
