Extra credit in itself does not remove the element of free choice. We have some teachers who give a limited amount of extra credit to teens that participate in any STEM activity outside of school. All teens have a choice of what to participate in or to not participate at all.

An element of choice is lost when teachers require the teens to write up a summary or do something else to demonstrate they were at the program and actively participating.
