In my lab, we are currently working on three projects. One project is examining ways to try to encourage more students, particularly those from underrepresented minority and gender groups, get involved in STEM and computer science fields. A second project focuses on the relationship between teacher emotions and teacher-student relationships. This project is just beginning. The third project involves helping me analyze older data that have already been collected on student motivation, ethnicity, and achievement.
