Abstract
  • Portal to the Public (PoP) has been operated with considerable funding from the National Science Foundation since 2007 under the leadership of the Pacific Science Center (PSC). The program uses a particular model to train and support science-based professionals (“scientists”) in outreach and engagement activities, based on the premise that scientists should engage directly and through materials-rich hands-on activities with family audiences, based on a basic understanding on how people learn, and how to engage audiences in discovery-based learning. Furthermore, the model assumes that scientists need ongoing logistical and pedagogical support by educators and peers, and easy access to audiences.
