Innovation in out-of-school science

Justin Dillon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


Taking the view that practical activities provide learning experiences in which students interact with materials or with secondary sources of data to observe and understand the natural world, this article demonstrates how and why science can be taught outside the classroom. Examples are given of successful projects involving schools, museums, science centres and botanic gardens from the UK and elsewhere.
