2021 Poster - Investigating the Impact of Head Start Family Interactions on Children’s STEM Process Skills during Family Events at Two Science Centers
Conversations with parents during engagement in informal learning settings, such as museums, can play a critical role in facilitating young children’s early experiences and interest in STEM (Jant et al., 2014; NRC, 2012). There is an acute need to support early STEM engagement for underrepresented families. Successful community partnerships between informal learning settings and Head Start are one way to broaden participation, interest, and success in the STEM fields for underrepresented children and families.
This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting.
