Tufts University

Since 1986 the Center for Science and Mathematics Teaching at Tufts University has successfully addressed a problem that has become a national priority: improving the teaching and learning of science in the nation's schools and universities. The Center, directed by Ronald Thornton, develops curricula, activities, and computer tools which allow students to participate actively in their own learning and to construct scientific knowledge for themselves. Using these materials the students learn directly from the physical world. The Center's substantial conceptual-learning research and evaluation program guides the development of materials.Stuff
