Learn from Practice and Research

Considering the diversity of people, places, and projects across ISE and SciComm, there is much to gain from learning from one another. STEM practitioners and researchers include those who work across ISE and SciComm research and practice in or with informal learning environments such as museums, aquariums and zoos, community-based organizations, gardens and nature centers, makerspaces, and more, as well as those occupying various roles such as researchers, scientists, engineers, mathematicians, social scientists, educators, evaluators, artists, designers, developers, journalists, producers, and other STEM-based professionals. Below are resources jointly produced by STEM researchers and practitioners to support cross-sector learning and collaborative approaches.
