Family engagement with science facilitates disciplinary talk, supports scientific thinking, and scaffolds understanding of science, thus playing a critical role in children's development of science knowledge, skills, interest, and identity. Family-based science learning involves unique characteristics, such as intergeneration relationships, serendipity, shared history, and continuity, that need to be better conceptualized and require adjusted methodologies.

In this talk Dr Neta Shaby will present her longitudinal research on science family learning using learning ecosystem approach and the concept of resources use and appropriation, exploring family learning across settings and time. She uses video and audio recorded observations for macro and micro analysis of the interactions. Furthermore, she explores the role of emotions within science family engagements using EDA (Electro Dermal Activity) measures to capture real-time emotional engagement.
