Finding an agreement over what defines a non-formal or informal learning setting is difficult to pinpoint. For SySTEM 2020 and for future research within this area of study, clarity on these terms needs to be grasped. Science Gallery Dublin has provided a starting point with the release of a systematic literature review on these terms attempting to find some consensus, filling in the gaps where possible.

News 14 December 2018

SySTEM 2020: Science learning outside the classroom is happy to present its very first newsletter to you. It's more than just project updates, it's all the latest developments in the field of out-of-school learning. Perhaps you have been confused by all these terms, like we have, formal/informal or nonformal? Which one is which and what is the difference? For the last few months, we have been trying to figure this out.

News 11 December 2018

The communication of SySTEM 2020 is like the modern completion of Alexandre Dumas’ battle cry in The Three Musketeers. We believe that partnership between people who want to contribute to the same aim needs to be promoted – internally and externally. It's with this idea in mind that we at Ecsite have decided to kick-start SySTEM 2020 communications campaign. On social media, we wanted to connect our partners and our target audience with our mission - to promote science learning outside the classroom.
