Student-scientist-teacher interactions provide students with a number of advantages; 1) opportunities to interact with experts and professionals in the field, 2) a chance at meeting a role model that may impact students' career choice, 3) increased awareness of available career options combined with an understanding of how their skills and interests affect their career decisions, 4) enhanced attitude and interest toward STEM professions, 5) opportunities to connect with scientists as human beings and see them as "real people" and replace stereotypical perceptions of scientists. In addition, there are also many advantages for the teacher or informal educator when these partnerships are established. For these reasons and more, numerous studies are often conducted involving the partnerships of students, scientists, and teachers.
