Gina Childers; Donna Governor; Kania Greer; Vaughan James – Research in Science Education, 2024
Science fiction conventions are places where the convergence of science fiction and science is discussed within diverse communities. Many of these science fiction conventions offer programming focused on science, often described as "science tracks," for science experts to share their experiences, expertise, scientific findings, and…

Stephanie C. Playton; Gina M. Childers; Rebecca L. Hite – Research in Science Education, 2024
States and school districts in the USA have begun to create and implement curriculum to promote elementary students' nascent STEM-related interests and to generate their initial knowledge of careers in those fields. Evaluating the efficacy of such interventions warrants valid and reliable tools, which are not presently available for middle…

Anna Otterborn; Bodil Sundberg; Konrad Schönborn – Research in Science Education, 2024
Swedish preschool science practice is confined to a unique educational setting where upbringing, care, and education are intertwined. This allows teachers to develop innovative cross-curricular and multidimensional science teaching. At the same time, society demands the digitalization of preschool practice, which has caused concern not only about…

Nani Teig – Research in Science Education, 2024
The advancement of technology has led to a growing interest in assessing scientific inquiry within digital platforms. This shift towards dynamic and interactive inquiry assessments enables researchers to investigate not only the accuracy of student responses ("product data") but also their steps and actions leading to those responses…

Kübra Özmen – Research in Science Education, 2024
While many university health science programs include physics courses to raise knowledge and understanding of physical science concepts, they are still far from addressing the needs of that science health profession. This study aimed to investigate the effect of an introductory physics course on first-year physiotherapy and rehabilitation (PR)…

Alison K. Mercier – Research in Science Education, 2024
Understanding teachers' experiences as they lived them and as they told them is important for conceptualizing a well-rounded view of the state of science education and the role teachers play in it. Journey mapping, a way of visualizing one's processes and experiences as they progress towards a goal, is a tool with the potential to capture…

Ulrika Bossér – Research in Science Education, 2024
The incorporation of socioscientific issues into science teaching to promote students' scientific literacy may require that science teachers reconsider and transform their teaching practices. This study examines the knowledge and considerations involved when two teachers incorporated socioscientific issues into their teaching, with the aim of…

Marie-Jetta den Otter; Alma Kuijpers; Michiel Dam; Ludo Juurlink; Fred Janssen – Research in Science Education, 2024
Chemical reasoning, and in particular structure--property reasoning, is an important goal of chemistry education. Johnstone's triangle (1982, 1991) is often used to explicate this type of reasoning. This triangle describes the multilevel thought chemical reasoning requires and shows why students find chemistry so difficult. However, this model…

Tal Yachin; Miri Barak – Research in Science Education, 2024
The growing trend of "escape games" in science education instigates debate over their pedagogical value, with researchers calling for more emphasis on theory-based design processes. Thus, the current study's goal was to identify situated learning components that can be associated with educational escape games and to generate a…

Marilyn Fleer – Research in Science Education, 2024
In recent years, limited research attention has been directed to what happens in science education before the age of 3 years. We present the findings of a study that followed 13 infant-toddlers aged 0.1-2.2 years (mean 1.8 years) and their educators from a childcare centre. Under the conditions of an educational experiment, the results of our…

Karen Marangio; Jared Carpendale; Rebecca Cooper; Jennifer Mansfield – Research in Science Education, 2024
Creative and critical thinking (C&CT) capabilities are essential qualities of future ready scientific literate citizens. As teacher educators, developing C&CT in science pre-service teachers (PSTs) requires supporting PSTs' development of C&CT, in addition to supporting their understanding and capacity to teach for development of…

Yann Shiou Ong; Jaime Koh; Aik-Ling Tan; Yong Sim Ng – Research in Science Education, 2024
STEM education and research has gained popularity internationally over the last decade. However, there is a lack in specifications in existing K-12 STEM classroom observation protocols of how features of an integrated STEM experience/lesson would lead to desired outcomes and how those outcomes should be measured. To bridge this gap, we propose the…

Anna G. Brady – Research in Science Education, 2024
Computer-based learning environments (CBLEs) are powerful tools to support student learning. Increasingly of interest is the data that is recorded as learners interact with a CBLE. This "process data" yields opportunities for researchers to examine learners' engagement with a CBLE and explore whether specific interactions are associated…

Wonyong Park; Alison Cullinane; Haira Gandolfi; Sahar Alameh; Günkut Mesci – Research in Science Education, 2024
There has been sustained research interest in the role of early career researchers in advancing the field and the challenges that they face. However, efforts to document lived experiences of researchers working in a specific research area within science education have been scarce. This paper considers the meaning of innovation in the context of…

Robin A. Costello; Abby E. Beatty; Ryan D. P. Dunk; Sharday N. Ewell; Jenna E. Pruett; Cissy J. Ballen – Research in Science Education, 2024
Addressing the challenges facing society and the world will require an understanding of the biases and limitations of science. To combat these challenges, here, we advocate for the incorporation of ideologically aware (IA) material into postsecondary biology curricula. IA materials communicate to students how biases, assumptions, and stereotypes…
