The SENCER models are curricular approaches to improving science learning and supporting engagement with complex issues. Through the “lens” of an important public challenge a SENCER model course or program teaches rigorous STEM content in real-world context. SENCER models have addressed chronic and infectious disease, water and air quality, energy, food security, and other issues affecting the well-being of our local and global communities and using serious scientific reasoning, inquiry, observation, and measurement. SENCER courses and programs connect scientific knowledge to public decision-making, policy development, and the challenge of thinking systemically about complex challenges.
