Looking for adventure? The High-Adventure Science project has published a new paper in the Journal of Research in Science Teaching titled “Assessment of uncertainty-infused scientific argumentation.” The authors defined a scientific argumentation construct consisting of claim, justification, uncertainty qualifier and uncertainty rationale. The study includes results from almost 500 students who engaged in scientific argumentation tasks in three High-Adventure Science modules in climate change, the search for life in space and fresh water availability.

Join us on Saturday morning at the +National Science Teachers Association conference for one of our presentations (or come to all three!). Find out about young children’s temperature preconceptions, get free simulations for exploring Earth's systems and sustainability and learn about SmartGraphs, which “know” about graph features!

The +National Science Teachers Association conference is just down the road (take the Mass Pike to Boston!), and we’re heading there with two presentations tomorrow. Join us at 2 pm for free simulations for biology teaching. Then at 5 pm, join the dragon breeders guild! Bring your own laptop and immerse yourself in Geniverse.

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.
