SEPAL: The Science Education Partnership and Assessment Laboratory is interested in how people learn science, especially biology, and how teachers and scientists can collaborate to make science teaching and learning in schools and universities more like how scientists practice science in their laboratories. Just like other science research groups, we ask questions about what we’re interested in, design ways to collect evidence to address our questions, and analyze and share the data that we collect with other researchers in our field.
