The SEER Center includes faculty, postdocs, and graduate students across the University of Georgia who perform research in collegiate STEM education. As science and technology continue to expand their relevance for life in the 21st century, and as a scientifically educated workforce is under increasingly short supply, there is a pressing need for solutions to improving science education in the United States, and specifically to transform how science is taught and learned in colleges and universities.

Research has a vital role to play in meeting these challenges. The SEER Center aims to develop cutting-edge collaborative research programs in university-based STEM education and to disseminate basic and applied research results to faculty both at UGA and at institutions across the Southeast and nationally.
