Abstract Title: PISEC: A partnership of physics, research, and youth agency
Abstract: The Partnerships for Informal Science Education in the Community (PISEC) is an informal physics program with strong conceptual foundations in the Fifth Dimension afterschool program model and design-based implementation research (DBIR) methods. PISEC is a joint collaboration between the JILA NSF Physics Frontier Center and the PER group in the physics department at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The continued success of the PISEC program, now over a decade old, can be attributed to many factors. This includes an equal focus on its growth as a physics-focused afterschool program for kids, partner of the local community, and as an active research program. We will share how foundational concepts of the program integrate to form a bi-directional benefit model, past research that has evolved the program, and how research methods are embedded in the program.
