The goal of this project is to design curriculum for secondary level (i.e. high school) physics that will lead to increased student engagement with energy related concepts and, in turn, more student interest and performance in energy-related STEM topics. It has been shown that lessons which engage students lead to better understanding and knowledge retention among students. In order to promote student engagement, these lessons are designed to be delivered in contexts such as clean and renewable energy, climate change, and life sciences. This project proposes a model to test whether the delivery of these contextualized lessons will lead to increased student performance as measured through various forms of assessment.
