CSE Squared - College of Education and Human Development - George Mason University

The Center for Social Equity through Science Education C(SE)2 originated from the Center for Restructuring Education in Science and Technology (CREST). The reboot of the center to C(SE)2 has been supported by the Donna R. and David E. Sterling Endowment in Science Education.

C(SE)2 continues the legacy of CREST by supporting students and teachers in the pursuit of rigorous science education for all through educational research. C(SE)^2 also extends this legacy by conducting philanthropic activities to support science education in communities with the most need.

Mission

The center for Social Equity through Science Education is a group of researchers, educators, and university students who are dedicated to helping all people to have a richer understanding of science. We intend to do this through two strands of effort: research and outreach. Our research strand answers questions about innovative ways to teach and learn science, strategies for all students to become science-minded, and models of effective inclusive STEM schools. We conduct outreach activities so that we can help K-12 students have the academic and material resources that they need to be successful learners.
