ARC Linkage Grant Success: Congratulations to Scientia Professor Andrew Martin (Education) and Associate Professor Joel Pearson (Psychology), with Dr Brad Papworth (The King’s School) for their successful ARC Linkage Grant titled “New Generation Psychological Advances in Science Motivation and Engagement”.

Summary: Following alarming declines in science participation and performance at school and beyond, this project harnesses educational psychology, physiological psychology, and neuro-psychology, to develop “new generation” advances in science motivation and engagement. Building on latest developments in mobile data capture in psychology, the project identifies key elements of student motivation and engagement associated with outcomes in school-based scientific disciplines.
