The REESE Program


Established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2006, the Research and Evaluation on Education in Science and Engineering (REESE) program advances research at the frontiers of STEM education and evaluation, and provides the foundational knowledge necessary to improve STEM teaching and learning at all educational levels and in all settings. The Center for Advancing Research and Communication (ARC) maintains this website to provide information about and build community among the over 300 projects across the U.S. funded under the REESE program.
