CIWS As Part Of A Broader Program Of Research And Outreach

CIWS is part of a program of research and education-outreach focused on the developmental trajectories of underrepresented youth, and why these youth often do not choose careers in science. This work includes the creation of curricula for school-aged children to strengthen their scientific reasoning skills (“Thinking Like A Scientist”), the study of factors that lead to group disparities, and the broad, national and international evaluation of programs targeting the narrowing of achievement gaps.
