Biography: 

Eugene Judson has a broad base of experience in science education, educational policy, and school improvement. His research focuses primarily on educational policies and their effects on STEM education in both K-12 and higher education environments. In the context of STEM, Dr. Judson addresses (1) understanding effects of education policy, (2) examining issues of inclusion and equity, and (3) supporting effective learning environments. Recent and ongoing project topics include promoting STEM aspirations among youth of refugee communities in Arizona; gender-based differences in how STEM faculty are assigned various duties; trends in science and math Advanced Placement (AP) among underrepresented students; and evaluating how educators make sense of Next Generation Science Standards. 

Education: 
  • Ed.D. Curriculum and Instruction, Science Education, Arizona State University 2002
  • M.Ed. Educational Media and Computers, Arizona State University 1997
  • B.A. Secondary Science Education, Arizona State University 1990   
Research Interests: 

Current Research Projects:

Eugene Judson is leading two National Science Foudation projects focused on promoting STEM aspirations among youth and families of refugee backgrounds. The projects focus on the importance of families learning together as they develop social capital. The projects utilize innovative technologies in reaching goals, such as e-mentoring with STEM professionals on smartphones and digital storytelling. 

Dr. Judson is also working on a CSForAll project aimed at promoting equitable computer science instruction among rural counties in Arizona.
