Research & Reports
In order to formally provide data about the efficacy of hands-on
science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning
activities, the CEEO formally established its educational research
division in 2004. This launch coincided with the founding of the
MSTE program within the department of education at Tufts, which in
2003 had begun accepting master's and Ph.D. track students to delve
into rigorous education research.
Tufts University is just one of a few universities in the U.S. that
has an Engineering Education program, and is the only university in
the U.S. that has an Engineering Education program focused heavily
on the primary-school age group.
The CEEO and the MSTE program celebrated its first doctoral graduate
student in February 2009, and will continue to hood students over
the next several years as well as publish the graduates' research
results on the impact of engineering education on the student,
teacher, and curricula.
