National Science Foundation
Over the past decade, NSF has supported various syntheses of STEM education research findings to be read and used by scholars and practitioners. Included are several seminal reports by committees of the National Research Council, which synthesize research on STEM teaching and learning and have been published through the National Research Council's National Academy Press. These materials are listed because they generally provide interested STEM educators with the rationale that undergirds many recent NSF products.
