Education Research-to-Performance Youth Apprentice Program Research Festival

Participants in the AERA Education Research-to-Performance Youth Apprentice Program will exhibit their developing and ongoing work during a Research Festival at the Annual Meeting. Under the guidance of senior education researchers, high school and undergraduate students will participate in a series of activities—performances, exhibits, and paper and poster presentations—designed to enhance their appreciation of education research, deepen their engagement in it, and inspire them to recognize just how powerful and persuasive knowledge production can be.
