Science and Math Education Research Collaborative (SMERC)

SMERC consists of a multidisciplinary group of discipline-based education researchers, who study how students learn the STEM disciplines, apply science to problem solving, and become enculturated as scientists. This research is a form of inquiry-based scholarship that brings together deep knowledge of the sciences and scientific practices with cognitive psychology and pedagogical theory.
