Welcome to the Ellis Research Group in the Mallinson Institute for Science Education at Western Michigan University. We focus on two main areas of research:
- Studying and Improving Weather and Climate Education for learners of all ages, including K-12 students, undergraduates, graduate students, and learning in informal settings for all ages.
- Improving teacher professional development in STEM disciplines, with a focus on earth science and environmental education using place-based education, authentic data analysis in the classroom, and student observations
