Title:Science Education Outreach: Physics Demonstrations, Lectures, and Workshops

Abstract:This article reports our evaluation of the highly-successful outreach program of the Physics Department at the University of Illinois, which is designed for teachers and students in grades K through 12. Our evaluation shows some surprising effects of this kind of science education outreach. Thousands of children have benefited, but many teachers could take better advantage of this and similar outreach programs if they knew more about what they can and cannot do. Although our study focused on the Physics Outreach, we believe that the findings have general implications for teachers and others involved in science education outreach.
