The Center for STEM Research has been conducting research studies in STEM since its founding 25 years ago. We have always been interested in interconnected learning, particularly the role of informed engineering design in improving learning in math, science and language arts.
Hofstra University’s Center for STEM Research in conjunction with Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), The CUNY Graduate Center’s Center for Advanced Study in Education (CASE), and 25 Boys & Girls Clubs joined together to introduce middle school age youth to innovative and engaging blended STEM based engineering challenges through activities that include both on-line and hands-on components. WGG is supported by National Science Foundation award DRL 1422436
WISEngineering is essentially a massive online learning environment, a very sophisticated computer system that permits capture of input information from users in the form of text, photos, videos, comments of about same as well as indirect measures such as time on task and keystroke data.
