Abstract: The goal of this study was to explore the effectiveness of the Teaching for Transformative Experiences in Science (TTES) model for facilitating deep learning as compared to a typical teaching method implemented in science class when learning about evolution. We then wanted to explore what these experiences look like. Both quantitative and qualitative methods were used to explore participant experiences. This study seeks to improve teaching by exploring how to facilitate out-of-school engagement.
