Professor Phillip Bell is the associate professor of the Learning Sciences at the University of Washington Seattle and co-chair of the National Research Council's Informal Science Learning Committee. Dr. Bell will share recent research from the NSF-funded LIFE Center (Learning in Informal and Formal Environments) that examines how learning develops across time and setting.    

Bronwyn Bevan is the Director of the Center for Informal Learning and Schools (CILS), a partnership with the Exploratorium in San Francisco, Kings College London and University of California Santa Cruz.  Ms. Bevan will report on what the NSF-funded CILS is learning about the role that museums can and do play in enhancing and extending learning that happens both in and out of school.
