iEvolve with STEM

NSF Awards: 1238136

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8

iEvolve with STEM is an NSF Math-Science Partnership project that integrated  student participation in citizen science research (CSR) into classroom instruction in grades 3-8. This video will illustrate how the initial impact of this project on student motivation, engagement, and learning is now "rippling out" to influence others. For instance, Master teacher involvement has resulted in additional partnerships and grants that resulted in the installation of prairies for use in CSR in 3 additional school districts initially, and now will involve 6 districts and 17 schools. And additional grade levels are now participating in CSR in one of the original districts, with the installation of a prairie at the high school and expanded data reported in GLOBE, one of the CSR projects that is involved in the project. This may only be the beginning of the "blossoming" of CSR as a major means of not only increasing student engagement in learning, and deepening their mastery of state science standards, but also markedly improving student understanding and appreciation of the true nature of science.
