Project Description

STEPP Project

The study, Scaffolded Training Environment for Physics Programming (STEPP Project), tests a novel approach for teaching physics to high school students. This three-year research project uses specialized computer programs to teach students physics. Part of research is the development of a programming platform that allows a student with little or no knowledge of computer coding to build a system of rules and procedures from the ground up.
