Learning Better by Doing Research Project

References

The researchers used numerous references during the course of this study. Those references are listed below. Where possible, Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) are provided.

These resources substantiate the fact that students learn better by doing standards-based, hands-on activities based on real-world problems. These resources may be used to identify, support, and promote technology and engineering education programs.
