PROJECTS

  • Dartmouth Rural STEM Education Partnership. STEM teachers face pronounced problems in low-income rural areas: (i) students perceive STEM has little relevance to their lives; (ii) there is minimal STEM-related infrastructure available; and (iii) STEM teachers often teach outside their training area, have little support in preparing science units, and lack readily available STEM teachers with whom to interact. To enhance low-income rural STEM education, Dartmouth College, the Montshire Museum of Science, and educators from local middle schools are collaborating in a five-year project to develop and implement NGSS aligned, active learning units and create an interactive teacher network. More information and the units that have been created can be found at https://sepa.host.dartmouth.edu/. This work is supported by A Science Education partnership Award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. 
  • BUILD IT-BOX Program. The BUILD-IT BOX Program is an innovative mail-based intervention addressing the issue that students living in rural poverty are less interested and engaged in STEM than any other demographic group. Twelve hands-on, informal STEM activities were created. Then, every month for one year, middle-school students living in rural poverty received a BUILD-IT BOX with an activity, instructions, and al supplies. The impact of the program is currently being assessed by measuring improvement in STEM attitudes, engagement, knowledge, and cognitive processes, in turn providing critical insight into future scalability. The twelve BUILD-IT BOX kits can be found at BUILD-IT BOXES. This work is supported by a gift from the Byrne Family Foundation and a Scholarly Innovation and Advancement Award.

  • Humans of the Upper Valley (HOUV) is a digital engagement project through which I share stories of Upper Valley residents. HOUV is a tool to change the narrative about community boundaries and belonging; by sharing personal narratives residents can better see and recognize the common humanity of others.
