PI Carrie Tzou will lead the subcontract to Northwestern University for this project to design and study K5 curriculum that addresses social-emotional learning in the time of the COVID-19 crisis. The project will work with curriculum designers, researchers, and K5 teachers to develop, test, and re-design comprehensive units that focus on social-emotional learning, science learning, equity, and COVID-19. Dr. Tzou will lead the effort to develop college credit pathways for high school students who engage substantially in the work of these informal science institutions. The 12.5 month project began in June 2020 with a budget of $141,000.
