Oppenheimer’s work to broaden student participation in research featured in two new papers

The first issue of the journal Frontiers in Education Technology features not one but two contributions by CSUN Professor Emeritus of Biology Steven Oppenheimer, highlighting his work to make research experiences accessible to students from the earliest stages of education to undergrad.

The first paper, led by Dominique Evans-Bye, recaps a National Science Foundation-sponsored webinar discussing an elementary student-led science project contributed by Evans-Bye to Oppenheimer’s New Journal of Student Research Abstracts, which compiles science projects by K-12 students as a resource for science educators. The second discusses Oppenheimer’s successes in undergraduate research mentoring, highlighting a 2011 publication co-authored with alumni Haike Ghazarian and Brian Idoni.
