Our projects and research shape the STEM education field by introducing innovative curricula and improving student access to STEM.
We support more than 60 active projects every year, and our high-quality, innovative research is based on the understanding that for STEM, real-world application matters. We inspire, motivate, and create life-long learners by helping students connect what they are taught in the classroom to the world around them.
These projects and our research are designed to encompass a wide range of subjects and disciplines within STEM education and teaching methods to expand accessibility for all eager minds.
This fellowship will result in two case studies that explore the persistence of Native American women in computing and technology higher education.
NSP is a longitudinal study on the experiences of Native STEM students, faculty, and professionals and the barriers and supports they encounter in STEM.
This study examines landscape data and trends on participation of Native women and two-spirit individuals in computing through a scoping review of the existing literature.
Project LEAP researchers are developing a Grades K–5 Early Algebra Learning Progression (EALP) to foster young children’s algebraic thinking and are testing its potential to improve children’s algebra-readiness for middle grades.
Broadening rural middle school history students’ participation in meaningful and culturally relevant CS instruction.
This project looks for large scale impacts of such a widespread, sustained-over-time experience on students, teachers, schools and communities.
Investigators from TERC, Landmark College, and MIT collaborated to examine the relationships among patterns of play in a digital game (“Impulse”), student attention (measured from eye- and head-tracking devices); and student learning about Newton’s first and second laws.
Robots in Science supports middle school physical science teachers to develop and implement integrated robotics units in their classrooms.
SEEC offers consultation, external evaluation, and research support for existing STEM education grants and programs and collaborates with proposal writing teams to design studies.
