Some folks over at NC State University are conducting a study about people with science hobbies, and since homebrewing beer definitely falls into that category, they asked me to share some information about the study, as they’re looking for brewers/hobbyists to fill out an online survey to help provide them with data.
So fill it out, help them study how to better teach science (by brewing beer, obviously), and get entered in a raffle for a $100 Target gift card!
Science Hobbyists Needed for a National Study
Are you a science hobbyist?
We need your help with a new National Science Foundation sponsored research study that will investigate the characteristics and educational experiences of people who are active in science hobbies. More and more people are engaging in science hobbies; schools and science centers would like to know more about the characteristics of science hobbyists and how these organizations might better support hobbyists’ networking and education.
What will happen if you take part in the study?
The information gained from this research can help science educators and researchers understand how to better teach science in schools and museums, and how to design better community-based science programs. Participation in this study is voluntary. Information you provide will be anonymous. If you complete the survey, you may elect to enter a drawing for a $100 Target gift card.
