Since its inception, SEPUP has served as a focus of educational research. Doctoral dissertations, journal articles, conference papers, and federal studies have examined SEPUP’s approach to science education and its effectiveness in the field.

We have compiled both a summary of the principal findings and an annotated bibliography of this research on SEPUP and its instructional materials.

You may download both documents here in pdf format for which you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.
