Research & Development

With funding from SSHRC (2010-2014), Dr. Bencze's research programme is centred around the STEPWISE curriculum and instruction framework. This framework organizes teaching and learning goals/'expectations' in a way that encourages and enables students (and others) to conduct research-based actions to address personal, social and/or environmental issues relating to fields of science and technology. Excellent depictions of many such issues is provided by the Story of Stuff project. The STEPWISE team works with teachers, students, community activist groups and others.

Information about our activities is available through various downloadable flyers:

o Teachers: Recruitment (A, B); Resources.

o Community Activists: Adults; Youth.

Associated with STEPWISE, is the PASTE project and its journal, Journal for Activist Science & Technology Education.
