The purpose of the CREATE Science Seminar series is to help create a vibrant collaborative community at MSU around research in science education K-16. We provide a venue to disseminate and discuss innovative research methods and results. These seminars also offer opportunities to foster relationships and network with experts in STEM education research. By providing this series, CREATE ultimately strives to help solve challenging problems in the teaching and learning of science.

Seminar series events feature an interdisciplinary audience of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students in STEM with a broad interest in Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER), Science Teacher Educators, K-12 STEM education researchers, K-12 science teachers, and school administrators.

We hope you’ll be able to join us at these events!
