Project Title:

Science Investigations and Engineering Design for Grades 6-12
PIN: DBASSE-BOSE-15-03        

Major Unit:

Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education
National Academy of Engineering

Sub Unit: Board on Science Education

RSO: Brenner, Kerry

Subject/Focus Area: Education


Project Scope
The committee will review research on science investigations and engineering design for middle and high school students conducted since publication of America’s Lab Report (National Research Council, 2006) and use this research to inform the revision of the original report. The review of research will include research and evaluations of innovative approaches, such as computer modeling or use of large on-line data sets that have become more widely available since publication of the original report. The committee will provide guidance for designing and implementing science investigations and engineering design for middle and high school students that takes into account the new vision for science education embodied in the Framework for K-12 Science Education (National Research Council, 2012) and standards based upon it.

 
Project Duration: 18 months
