Monday, August 24, 2015

"Google Inc. has awarded $150,000 to two Indiana University researchers to support a study of how early experiences can trigger and maintain an interest in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Adam Maltese, associate professor of science education, and Kylie Peppler, associate professor of learning sciences, both in the School of Education at IU Bloomington, will examine how making -- building, tinkering, taking things apart -- can promote a scientific mindset in young people."

Dr. Peppler is a member of the CEWiT Faculty Leadership Team and the CEWiT Circles Champion. Read more about her research here.
