  1. Full OLS regressions included N = 586 for fascination, values, and competency beliefs, and N = 316 for scientific sensemaking across all experience types. Match and Plus covariates regressions included N = 216, 236, and 100 for home-related, nature-related, and STEM camps experiences, respectively
