Excited to see students studying heat conduction and more with hands-on activities using +FLIR Systems infrared cameras. We’ve been doing this for some time! The possibilities are awesome.

Our own Amy Pallant and Hee-Sun Lee authored an article in the latest issue of the Journal of Science Education and Technology. Constructing Scientific Arguments Using Evidence from Dynamic Computational Climate Models details their investigation into how students construct scientific arguments based on evidence from climate change simulations.
Modeling and argumentation are two important scientific practices students need to develop throughout school years. In this paper, we investigated how middle and high school students (N = 512) construct a scientific argument based on evidence from computational models with which they simulated climate change. We designed scientific argumentation tasks with three increasingly complex dynamic climate models. Each scientific argumentation task consi...

We look forward to seeing you at our two presentations today at NSTA. Find out about engineering with models and sensors and learn more about how we’re designing physical science assessments that integrate three-dimensional learning.

At NSTA? Stop by National Geographic's booth (#1760) to learn more about our High-Adventure Science activities. Didn't make it to the conference this year? That's OK! You can still try these awesome Earth science activities now.

Revolutionary Digital Learning for Science, Math, and Engineering
Introduction
We're a nonprofit educational research and development organization based in Concord, Massachusetts. Our pioneering work brings the promise of technology into a reality for education in science, math and engineering.

We have a diverse group of innovators who are truly amazing. They are collaborative, creative, and fully dedicated to our core mission. And they combine bucketloads of disciplinary knowledge, educational experience, and technological expertise in marvelous ways, all in the name of showing educational technology's true potential to the world.

Our mission is to stimulate large-scale, technology-based improvements in teaching and learning. Education is the single most important investment a society can make in its future. Quality education is essential to help people everywhere realize their full potential. But education needs enormous changes if it is to deliver on this promise. Its huge size, vested interests, and outmoded traditions prevent change.
