Mission

Science Approach creates e-labs that empower learners to explore how scientists visualize, measure, and analyze patterns in data that lead to new discoveries. Using visualization, simulation, and statistical analysis software built into the e-laboratories, students visualize relationships in the data, gather measurements, conduct statistical analyses, test hypotheses, and report and discuss results. The technologies deployed in the e-labs and apps are tailored to the tasks at hand, thus overcoming the complexity of using research software as a teaching tool and allowing students to focus on content learning rather than tool mastery.

Science Approach continues the legacy of the Center for Image Processing in Education (CIPE)
