The theme of the 2019 PER conference was "Physics Outside of the Classroom: Teaching, Learning, and Cultural Engagement in Informal Physics Environments" This conference was an invitation for the PER community to engage in debate and discussion about learning environments other than formal classroom experiences. In addition to the papers addressing this year’s theme, the remainder of the papers represent the diversity of current research within PER and help this volume fulfill its purpose of providing an annual snapshot of the field.

Readership: Physics education researchers (faculty, post-doctoral students, and graduate/undergraduate students); researchers in fields close to Physics Education, such as cognitive science, chemistry education, biology education; physics faculty at undergraduate and graduate levels; high school physics teachers.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Exploratorium, the self-described “museum of science, art and human perception,” in San Francisco, California and the 10th anniversary of the launching of the National Research Council/National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine report Learning Science in Informal Environments: People, Places and Pursuits. The moment offered me an opportunity to reflect on my own professional journey, which began at the Exploratorium, coincided with a growth spurt of field knowledge-building and has included experiences that inform how I think about the potential and challenges ahead.

Informal learning offers opportunities for physics – opportunities that I hope the physics education research (PER) community can co-define and engage with. This commentary piece is a personal reflection on this topic. It reflects, and builds on, my Physics Education Research Conference (PERC) 2019 presentation. Grounded in my personal experiences with informal physics education, my PERC presentation asked those present to collectively consider the values, practices, and people they associate with successful informal learning. Attendee comments are presented and discussed in ways that I hope the PER community will identify with and respond to. They suggest myriad opportunities that informal learning offers physics – opportunity to i) engage diverse groups of people in doing physics; ii) for physicists as a community; iii) to advance the field.
