De Leon, Izaak J.; Westerlund, Julie F. – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
Diversity has been shown to improve the ability of groups to problem solve and make predictions, as well as guarding against groupthink and overconfidence. Marginalized groups within the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields are still largely underrepresented despite various efforts to increase diversity in STEM. This…

Benegas, Julio; Flores, Julio Sirur – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
This work proposes a new approach for measuring long-term conceptual knowledge based on the after-instruction evolution of students' answers to a research-based, multiple-choice, single-response test. The method allows for a quantitative determination of the fraction of students that, after instruction, attain long-lasting and temporary learnings,…

Playton, Stephanie D. C.; Hite, Rebecca; Leach, Paula K. – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
Both computer science (CS) knowledge and workforce readiness skills (e.g., creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking) have equally grown in national importance to fill the growing pipeline of CS careers. Various factors have contributed to CS job shortages, which include a lack of student instruction on, engagement with,…

Cartwright, Tina J.; Hemler, Deb; Magee, Paula A. – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
Climate change is an increasingly pervasive global topic, but how much of this discussion is accurately understood by students? Fully comprehending the small fluctuations associated with long term changes in temperature and precipitation is a daunting task for the general public, let alone for middle-level adolescents. This study examines…

Çelik, Harun; Pektas, Hüseyin Miraç; Karamustafaoglu, Orhan – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
In class environments, the flipped classroom (FC) model has been found to increase students' attitudes, achievement, and motivation. However, the practical effects of the FC model in laboratory environments have not been introduced into the literature. Therefore, in this study, the effects of the FC model on the laboratory self-efficacy skills and…

Groves, Matthew – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
As a science teacher and youth minister from a predominantly white evangelical community in rural Appalachia, I have had many opportunities to teach the science of global warming to climate change deniers. In this manuscript, I share some of the lessons I have learned to make my presentations less contentious and help those I teach be more…

Morgan, Jonathan – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
Scientific insights can help us better understand ourselves, others, and the world we share. These insights can also radically challenge our sense of who we are, our place in the universe, and the very nature of the universe. When science communicators venture into this metaphysical terrain they quickly encounter dearly held religious beliefs.…

Shaver, Ruth – Electronic Journal for Research in Science & Mathematics Education, 2021
Environmental justice, a phrase first used in reference to the activism of a community in Warren County, NC in the late 1970s, is a broad category of work at the intersection of caring for nature and caring for people. Residents of the majority black county sought relief from the impending designation of a landfill site in the county as a dumping…
