Advancing Informal STEM Learning  (AISL)

AISL Webinar 101 and 102 Information

Webinar on AISL Solicitation: Documentation available

In November and December 2013, NSF staff held webinars designed to provide an overview of the AISL solicitation (13-608) as well as to respond to questions from participants.

Documentation (slides, audio, and transcripts) for the webinars are available at the bottom of page linked here.

 

 

SCIENCE LEARNING + Announced

Science Learning+ will provide up to $14.4 million to support research into how learning happens outside the classroom, exploring the most effective practices and building the evidence base in this area. The aims are: (1) to learn more about, evaluate, and maximize the impact of informal learning experiences, and (2) to improve understanding of how informal environments may help to widen access to STEM for youth from all backgrounds.

Science Learning+ is an international partnership established by NSF (National Science Foundation), the UK-based Wellcome Trust and the UK ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) in collaboration with the MacArthur Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the Noyce Foundation. Find the solicitation here.
