The Center for Science and Technology in Education is in the Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership in the University of Maryland College of Education. Our mission is to advance knowledge and understanding in science education and educational learning technologies for researchers and other constituencies and to develop educational leaders who will inform policy, improve practice, and address pressing social concerns with innovations in science education and educational technology.
We provide courses for the professional study of science education and learning technologies in both formal and non-formal settings and at levels from elementary through university. We offer degree programs in instructional practice toward Maryland State teacher certification in biology, chemistry, physics, and earth/space science. We also offer degree programs in science education and learning technologies research, toward a variety of careers in science and technology in education.
