Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education

SRI's education researchers share a passion for enabling all students to learn advanced, conceptual, and challenging aspects of science, technology, engineering, and  math (STEM) that are essential for life in the 21st century. To meet this goal, SRI’s researchers

  • Co-design new STEM materials and approaches with experts in schools, universities, and other organizations

  • Investigate promising and transformative ways of using new technologies

  • Study the implementation of curricular innovations

  • Provide a scientifically grounded perspective on the challenges of improving policies and practices

Our synergistic teams have the ability to examine all aspects of a curricular activity system, including curricular innovation, pedagogy, technology, assessment, and leadership.
