Network Science in Education
Welcome to the Network Science in Education site of the Center for Polymer Studies (CPS) Science Education Group at Boston University in collaboration with the New York Hall of Science and Binghamton University at SUNY’s Collective Dynamics of Complex Systems Research Group.
At CPS, our science education work is a significant aspect of the goals of our interdisciplinary science research center. Our research is devoted to interdisciplinary study of aspects of polymer, random, fractal and complex systems. In the CPS science education group, we have been dedicated, for over two decades, to enhancing undergraduate and K-12 science education by adapting research-based models and visualization tools, developing new curricula, hosting workshops and summer internships, and involving undergraduate and graduate university students in K-12 classrooms.
The New York Hall of Science is New York City’s hands-on science and technology center. Since 1986, NYSCI has served over seven million children, parents and teachers. NYSCI’s mission is to convey the excitement and understanding of science and technology to children, families, teachers and others by galvanizing their curiosity and offering them creative, participatory ways to learn. NYSCI features the largest collection of hands-on science exhibits in New York City. Visitors of all ages can explore over 450 interactive exhibits, including Connections, an exhibit on networks.
The Collective Dynamics of Complex Systems Research Group at Binghamton University is an interdisciplinary research group with principle areas of study being social dynamics, network dynamics and swarm dynamics. The research group also has led efforts in science education, co-developing with NYSCI the pilot of the NetSci-High Program.
