Stem Research Center

The center was established in 2012 to work across campus to enhance OSUs capacity in STEM learning research, and to strengthen the impact of this research on the practices of teaching and learning. Within the context of OSU,“STEM” includes the natural, physical and social sciences; technology; engineering; and mathematics as single disciplines or in any combination, and extends to the integrative STEM disciplines of forestry, agriculture, fisheries, (veterinary) medicine, and health sciences. The Center is unique among STEM center counterparts around the country in its focus on research and its commitment to understanding learning and engagement across all settings (in and out of school) and across the lifespan for all audiences. These audiences range from young to old learners, laypeople to STEM professionals, and occur within both formal educational and free-choice learning contexts.
