  • Promoting the adoption of standards for K-12 content and pedagogy — especially inquiry, equity, and technology use — by middle and high school science teachers through ongoing in-service activities developed collaboratively by teachers and researchers
  • Increasing teachers' skills in developing, assessing, and utilizing web-based curricular materials and resources, especially in integrating online resources into inquiry-based teaching.

St. Pierre Schneider has provided scientific outreach and laboratory experiences for high school and college students during the past three summers.
