Dr. Royce encourages science educators to use their voice to advocate for high standards in education.
Dr. Dennis Schatz, Executive Director Pacific Science Museum, shared his research on out of school learning for all students, primary, secondary and adults. In particular, his research studies out of school learning STEM programs and activities that can be accounted to compliment classroom education. Dr. Schatz believes that we should have Monday Night Science excitement to equal that of Monday Night Football.
