GK-12 Publications and Media Products

Fellows have published seventeen peer-reviewed journal articles using data from their GK-12 projects.  Publications focus on both scientific results arising from analysis of data collected as part of projects, or on the role of scientists in education.  In addition to journal articles, fellows have published articles in the popular media, have produced websites, CDs, DVDs and other videos, and have developed educational and marketing brochures.
