Scientific thinking is using good information to make decisions and come to conclusions. It is used in every academic discipline. The Center for Educational Networks and Impacts (CENI) invites faculty, students, and community members from all disciplines to bring their most inspiring ideas, demonstrations, and experiences for children to the Virginia Tech Science Festival on November 12. At this playdate, we'll discuss how the festival inspires, connects, and impacts learners in our networks. Learners include children, parents, caregivers, undergraduates, grad students, community members, and faculty - on both sides of the festival table. We'll discuss strategies for creating impactful experiences that are rewarding for everyone involved, how grant-funded broader impacts can be woven into the festival experience, how the festival connects to our public school and museum networks, and how we measure impact in informal learning.
