Research Project

Jamie became a research associate at SEPAL and performed a study of the Science views of 97 seventh grade students at an urban public middle school. This study became a chapter in her master’s thesis, which incorporated the use of written assessment data and individual video interviews. She was particularly interested in student’s science views in the context of religious and cultural beliefs. She currently lectures at SFSU and continues to do research with SEPAL. Jamie is currently interested in how students learn science at the college level and how gender and culture affects a student’s views of science.
