PIRE: Crafting Engagement in Science Environments is a five-year, $3.6 million research grant funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The researchers and teachers involved are working to boost interest and engagement in science for all students. They are also providing students with the skills and opportunities to pursue science in the future.

Collaborative Research: Enhancing Middle Grades Students’ Capacity to Develop and Communicate Their Mathematical Understanding of Big Ideas Using Digital Inscriptional Resources
The Inscriptions Math Project incorporates design-based implementation research. This process is based on collaboration among researchers and practitioners and focuses on iterative analysis, design, development, and implementation. Something that is iterative involves multiple cycles of development, testing, and revision. For this project, the research process includes four design phases that will study how students use the digital learning space and related inscriptional resources.
We are an organization of graduate students interested in pursuing DBER as it relates to the STEM disciplines. Our aim is to support the professional development of our members and develop skills for conducting and disseminating rigorous STEM education research. Our group provides a community o
