About Us

The Center for Social Equity through Science Education [C(SE)^2] originated from the Center for Restructuring Education in Science and Technology (CREST; https://cehd.gmu.edu/crest/) created by the late Dr. Donna Sterling of George Mason University. The reboot of the center to C(SE)^2 has been supported by the Donna R. and David E. Sterling Endowment in Science Education.

C(SE)^2 continues the legacy of CREST by supporting students and teachers in the pursuit of rigorous science education for all through educational research. C(SE)^2 also extends this legacy by conducting philanthropic activities to support science education in communities with the most need.
