Abstract

Informal STEM learning outside of school can offer opportunities for children and parents to interact for STEM learning (Sobel & Jipson, 2016); however, there is a lot of variability in terms of how children and parents talk about STEM, and this STEM language can affect children’s STEM achievement in middle school (Pruden et al., 2011).
