STEM Builders

These projects are investigating the core foundations which build up conceptual reasoning in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.

Research Description

There are some core building blocks that form the foundation for many Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Some of these building blocks are conceptual, such as having a strong number sense or understanding of ratio and proportion. Others involve ways of reasoning, such as looking for the general solution. In a series of projects we tackle some of these building blocks, toward the goal of giving students foundational experiences that will enable them to succeed in STEM topics.
