Informal education supporting formal education

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has a statement about the value of links between informal education institutions and schools. NSTA's Strategy 2005 Goals document lists as Objective 2.3 (page 8) “Implement strategies to connect informal science education to the instructional needs of teachers of science.”

A report for ASTC by Inverness Research Associates describes how informal science education institutions support schools. An updated study by the Exploratorium’s Center for Informal Learning and Schools is posted here.
