Center for Research in Lifelong Learning STEM

Growing from a partnership between the Colleges of Science and Education, the Center for Research in Lifelong STEM Learning provides a nexus for research on STEM learning and outreach across the campus, across communities, and across the lifespan.  The Center engages colleges across the university including Agriculture, Forestry, Business, Engineering, Public Health and Human Sciences, Liberal Arts, Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences, and OSU Statewide Public Service.

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).
