Science through Technology Enhanced Play

NSF Awards: 1323767

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

The Science through Technology Enhanced Play project (STEP) engages 6–8 year old students in a series of playful inquiry activities situated within a Augmented Reality environment. Tested at two schools and across two very different science topics—states of matter and the complex system of honey bee pollination—we have pioneered a new way for young students to engage in scientific inquiry and modeling in developmentally appropriate ways that breaks the mold of one-student-one computer. The big idea of STEP is to engage young children in an activity they are experts at, socio-dramatic play, in such a way that play becomes a form of scientific modeling and collective inquiry.
