After School

“If you ask Nobel Prize winners and other prominent scientists where they developed their fascination for science and technology, few will say it happened in class, most found their career inspiration outside of school.

 

The visionary behind Apple computers, Steve Jobs, caught the technology bug as a teenager attending afterschool programs. In afterschool, students can learn informally without the pressures of grades and tests.”

“After-school programs are gaining recognition as a setting that holds great potential for increasing child and youth literacy and engagement in science.(…)

If science anxiety does indeed exist, then the more relaxed, cooperative learning environment often found in after-school may be an ideal setting to reduce anxiety.”
