Free-Choice Learning Lab

A blog serving as an informal record of our informal learning research program, the Free-Choice Learning Lab. Oregon Sea Grant‘s Free-Choice Learning Lab, housed at Oregon State University‘s Hatfield Marine Science Center, employs cutting-edge research tools and technologies to study informal science learning. We put our knowledge into practice in the form of new and improved exhibits in the Hatfield Marine Science Center Visitor Center (often referred to as the HMSCVC or simply VC).
