CSL Frequently Asked Questions

Official tagline: Linking in-school and out-of-school STEM Learning

What is Connected Science Learning?

Connected Science Learning is an online journal that bridges in-school and out-of-school STEM learning by showcasing highly effective programs, practices, collaborations, and research taking place between these two worlds. This first-of-its-kind journal serves to inspire and inform a wide range of educators, both inside and outside the classroom, and help take full advantage of unique and engaging STEM learning opportunities that exist. Connected Science Learning is also a valuable resource for policy makers, corporations, foundations and others seeking to advance student learning in STEM.

Who produces Connected Science Learning and who contributes articles?
