Research: Our faculty and students present together at the North Carolina Science Teachers Conference. Faculty also present internationally at the Annual NARST conference, a gathering of the top science education researchers worldwide, and at the annual ASTE meeting, in which science teacher educators share key research pertaining to the preparation and professional development of science teachers. The faculty’s many research interests include:

  • curriculum design with the Next Generation Science Standards
  • equitable and meaningful science learning experiences
  • scientific representations
  • classroom assessment
  • teacher performance assessment

Partner with us to improve science education in eastern North Carolina and across the globe.
