Our collaborations with educators and education researchers help us better understand student misconceptions in biology and how to most effectively use simulations and other interactive activities to help students overcome them.
We’re excited that our projects inform and improve teaching and learning and we welcome collaborations with other biology education researchers. We work with academic and non-profit groups on educational projects and provide biological models for education researchers using our core modeling framework.
