Abstract

This paper examines digital outreach efforts by the School and Community Partnerships Department of the Saint Louis Science Center (SLSC.) The department's work is centered on Youth Exploring Science (YES), an extensive work-based science outreach program targeted to urban youth facing multiple risk factors. 'Web 2.0' has served as a facilitator of the YES program and participants' identity to both internal and external audiences.
