Dr. Wang’s research focuses on STEM integration, inquiry-based instruction, and experiential learning in science and agriculture education that across both formal and non-formal settings, with specific interest in the cognitive bases of STEM learning (e.g. how people learn in and across STEM disciplines and settings, such as the skills, knowledge and cognitive models needed to support STEM integration).
