PROJECTS AND INTERESTS

Conservation & Science Education

We are most interested in exploring the training and preparation of K-12 teachers in environmental literacy, ecological knowledge, and perceptions of real-world issues related to the environment and conservation. Even more so, we are passionate about exploring the land ethic, stewardship, and affinity towards nature that is present in students attending underserved, urban schools. In addition, we are interested in investigating student perceptions in belonging, identity, and representation in STEM classrooms.
