California State University, San Marcos
Led by physics educators and researchers at CSU-San Marcos, CU-Boulder, San Diego State University, Tennessee Technological University, and the University of Maryland, this project is creating a cohort of 50 physics education faculty who are implementing a physics and physical science curriculum for pre-service elementary teachers (NextGen PET). Faculty will participate in a virtual community that will support their implementation efforts. The project is studying this approach as a means to transform physics instruction at both the individual and institutional level.
Horizon Research, Inc. serves as the external evaluator for the project.
