There has been a noticeable trend in recent years, in which not only schools, but also society as a whole, attempt to help children learn science. However, few studies have been conducted on improving the science learning environment at home. Our research team has therefore developed an educational program called "OYAKO de Science," meaning "parent-child science program," which supports children and their parents in learning science through hands-on experiments at home. This program has been designed to teach participants about light for three weeks. The program consists of two workshops, which all participants attend, and learning activities in which each parent-child pair can participate at home on their own. To improve the science learning environment at home, three essential factors were incorporated into this program: hands-on experiments that would involve both child and parent; learning cycle of "prediction-experiment-result-explanation"; continuous learning through the use of cell phones. 60 pairs of parent and 4th or 5th grade child participated in this demonstration project. The result of project assessment showed the following three points: (a) The children participating in "OYAKO de Science" enjoyed performing experiments with their parents. They thought much about light in predicting the outcomes of the experiments, and while referring to the other children's predictions, they reviewed their own; at the same time, they became more motivated in the experiments they were going to perform. Furthermore, they were able to carry out the experiments mostly during the three-week program, and highly evaluated the use of cell phones as learning support tools, (b) The participants in "OYAKO de Science" were able to improve two important aspects in their learning environments at home: personal relevance-the ability to relate what one has learned to events in one's own life; uncertainty-recognition of the fact that science involves inventing theories and that it is influenced by people's ideas, (c) The three essential factors of "OYAKO de Science" were associated with improving the two aspects of the learning environment at home, "personal relevance" and "uncertainty."
