STEM Education Research Seminar (SERS)

The goal of the STEM Education Research Seminar series is to provide a forum for faculty working on research related to STEM education to present and discuss their work. All interested welcome.

The STEM Education Research Seminar is organized through the CREATE-STEM group by Anna Bargagliotti, Ph.D., Mathematics, and Jeff Phillips, Ph.D., Physics. Please contact them directly or via teachers@lmu.edu for further details.
