Museum of Science, Boston
The Museum of Science is studying the efficacy of its Engineering Is Elementary curriculum. The study is examining the impact of the curriculum on student learning and teachers’ use of the curriculum to determine the core elements of the curriculum that support successful use. The study examines the implementation of the curricular materials in a number of contexts to more fully understand the conditions under which they work best and to explicate what aspects of the materials most support student learning. Horizon Research, Inc. serves as the external evaluator for the project.
