About the Center for Integrating Research & Learning
The Magnet Lab has a strong commitment to education. Through the Center for Integrating Research & Learning, the lab supports educational programming at all academic levels: K-12, technical, undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral. Please explore the links listed to the left to find out more about the depth of our educational resources for the community, for teachers and for students as well as our unique research offerings.
Our programs are designed to excite and educate students, teachers and the general public about science, technology and the world around them. All of our programs are developed in close collaboration with research scientists and educators. Housed at and partly funded by the MagLab, the Center is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the excellent resources, connections, world-class facilities and cutting-edge science the lab has to offer. We also receive generous support from the National Science Foundation and the State of Florida.
The Center maintains a rigorous research agenda designed to investigate how Center programs and materials affect teachers and students. Specifically we are interested in how teachers translate their experiences at the Magnet Lab for students. The Center supports a Ph.D. student to assist in answering questions of interest to the national and international science education community.
