Assessing Learning Progressions (ALPs) is a National Science Foundation funded project aimed at helping researchers of learning progressions bridge the gap between the development of hypothetical learning progressions and the use of assessment to study and validate them.
NIH-Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has funded CREATE for STEM Institute at University of Michigan in collaboration with the School of Public Health at University of Michigan and other partners for this five-year project. The project, called Health in Our Hands, is developing and testing new learning materials that blend formal classroom instruction and informal community-based learning to give both students and community members opportunities to apply ideas about gene-environment interactions, natural selection, and evolution to their lives.
The Investigating and Questioning our World through Science and Technology (IQWST; pronounced I-quest) project develops the next generation of middle school curricula designed to enable teachers with diverse knowledge and experiences to teach science effectively to students with a variety of backgrounds and strengths to meet important learning goals aligned with the Next Generation of Science Standards.
The Discipline-Based Educational Research (DBER) Group at CREATE is a gathering of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who are grounded in their respective STEM disciplines and who have a research interest or focus on investigating and improving education, particularly at the undergraduate level.
The mission of science education is to blend science theory, research, and practical application to explore current issues in science teaching and learning.
