The EMBeRS project was initially conceived and launched in 2013 through the National Center for Socio-Environmental Synthesis (SESYNC). It is currently funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Traineeship (NRT) Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) program, award #DGE-1545404.
The EMBeRS project partners:
1) environmental, geologic, and geographic scientists with substantive education experience and/or cross training in the learning sciences;
2) formally educated learning scientists who specialize in science education; and
3) faculty teaching interdisciplinary environmental science classes willing to design and test EMBeRS-based activities.
