Get Involved

There are several ways for middle-school science teachers to participate in this National Science Foundation-funded study.

1. Participate in a Pilot Study in Spring 2017, or an Impact Study in Fall 2017.

• In March–May, we will conduct a pilot study with teachers who will use the Mars Generation One digital game and a 15-session mini-unit in class, and will participate in various other research activities.

• In the fall, we will conduct a larger impact research study, including using the game along with the supplemental mini-unit and participating in other research activities.

Participating teachers will receive a stipend of $500 (depending on their school district’s policy).

2. Take an Online Survey.

Teachers who complete a 10–15-minute online survey about their teaching practices and school environment will receive a $25 gift card (barring any district policies prohibiting it).
