Educational techniques are continually changing. In this Interactive Qualifying Project, recent education trends, mainly the philosophy of constructivism, were researched. Some important aspects of constructivism, such as hands-on learning and discussion techniques were then implemented into an ecology curriculum for two student programs at the Worcester EcoTarium, a science center devoted to the environment. A chemical and physical baseline study of the three sections of EcoTarium soil that will be disrupted by heavy construction was completed and used as a hands-on teaching tool.
