Luxembourg Science Center Impact Study

The Luxembourg Science Center Impact Study is improving how we understand lifelong learning by offering a unique opportunity to study the influence that the opening of the first science center in a country has on youth. This work will help us better understand if and to what extent a youth’s interaction with science center experiences (watching a science demonstration, interacting with exhibits, participating in an in-depth program) affects their interest in STEM subjects, enrollment in STEM-related courses, STEM-related identity and self-efficacy, and awareness of and interest in pursuing STEM careers. This study focuses on youth ages 12-15.
