Science and Teaching for Field Instructors

2015 Leadership Institutes

Exciting News!

BEETLES is excited to announce that we’ve received funding from the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Informal Science Learning program! Can we get a woo-hoo?!

What this means:

  • We’ll be conducting FIVE free Leadership Institutes over the next three years for 100 outdoor science programs. The first will be held in August 2017. More details and information about the application process will be posted on our website and sent out via our newsletter in November 2016.
  • With the Research Group at the Hall, we’ll be leading a significant parallel research project to examine the role that program characteristics and instructor practices play in youth science learning outcomes in the outdoors. We think the results of this study can fill a gap in the current research supporting outdoor science programs.

We’re thrilled that we get to keep doing this cool work with all of you. Beyond thrilled.

Craig, Kevin, Lynn, Emilie, Jedda and our Research Group partners, Rena, Bernadette, Valeria, and Mac.
