Experiments in Transmedia: Studying Techniques for Increasing STEM Content Ac...

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Undergraduate, Graduate, Adult learners, Informal / multi-age

Our research team wanted to know how early career adults 18 to 35 are engaging with STEM content. PBS NewsHour, in collaboration with New Knowledge Organization (NKO), embarked on a four-year research project that would build our understanding of how this demographic engages with STEM news content and, in turn, identify ways to boost their STEM news consumption. This video will provide an overview of the wide range of STEM content the NewsHour produced for broadcast, web and social media platforms and the research techniques used to analyze those products. We hope the main recommendations elicited from our results will help media organizations and STEM educators increase the reach and appeal of STEM content consumed by early career adults.
