Science Education and Outreach

In addition to STEM-content research, the PCP PIRE is currently, or plans to be, involved in research on science education and outreach. For example, current graduate students (including those pursuing non-traditional advanced STEM degrees) are exploring:

  1. The impacts of international STEM-based research experiences
  2. How students communicate and learn in bilingual distributed e-based social networks. As the PCP PIRE develops museum and related informal science educational Broader Impact components, additional opportunities for interdisciplinary research (e.g., education, journalism) will emerge.
