Michigan State University faculty member David Stroupe was recently honored for his innovative research in science teaching by the field’s leading organizations.
The National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST) presented Stroupe with the 2017 Early Career Research Award at the annual conference in April. This honor is granted to a researcher each year who shows the greatest potential to make outstanding contributions in science education within seven years after completing the doctoral degree.
One of the other three articles selected in the initiative, a partnership with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), was co-authored by fellow MSU College of Education faculty member Amelia Wenk Gotwals. She was recognized for her article with MSU graduate Hayat Hokayem: “Early elementary students’ understanding of complex ecosystems: A learning progression approach.”
The Research Worth Reading awards were presented to Gotwals and Stroupe on April 24.
