CoRE Lab

“CoRE” stands for Computing, Reasoning, and Expression.

We explore how scientific computing (e.g., data science, computer simulation, GIS) is changing the ways that young people learn and communicate about our world.

To do so, we bring together perspectives from the Learning Sciences, STEM Education, and Digital and Multimodal Literacies. Our research and design is done in partnership with educators and community organizations, with the shared goal of teaching scientific computing in ways that are ethical, equitable, and expressive.
