Cognitive and Neural Correlates of School-Based Improvements in Spatial Thinking

NSF Awards: 1420600

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

This behavioral and neuroimaging study investigates the effects of spatial education embedded in a science class (Geospatial Semester; GSS) on the core spatial abilities and STEM-relevant spatial thinking of high school students. Cognitive and neural indicators will be examined for evidence of change in students participating in GSS relative to students in other advanced science courses, and to address whether integrating spatial cognition into STEM lessons can mitigate commonly identified sex differences in spatial thinking.
