In the recent coronavirus epidemic, which has become a global problem in a short time, the number of cases worldwide has exceeded 470 million, while the number of deaths has exceeded 6 million. This situation, which negatively affects many areas of life, also negatively affected the teachers and students who make up the human dimension of education. This extraordinary situation and the rapidly developing technology highlight the necessity of out-of-school learning in science education. Based on this idea, the study aimed to examine the postgraduate theses and articles that included out-of-school learning in science education published in Turkey and internationally between the years 2016-2021. Many national and international databases such as Higher Education Council (YÖK) National Thesis Center, TR-Dizin, Proquest Dissertations and Thesis Abst&FT and Google Academic, Scholar Works, Eric, Science Direct were used to collect the data of the study, which was conducted with meta-synthesis, one of the qualitative research designs. In line with the aim of the study, a total of 106 studies were reached, with 64 studies conducted in Turkey and 42 studies conducted in the international arena.
