We are actively working to improve student learning and understanding in K-12 schools by engaging in education research.

We seek to answer questions such as:

  • How do can we improve students’ environmental citizenship?  What do we mean when we say environmental citizenship?
  • How do we measure improvement?
  • What do students need to know about carbon, water, and biodiversity in order to become environmentally literate?
  • How do students learn ecology from data and investigations?
  • What types of activities in the classroom and beyond foster interest and motivation for learning about ecology?
