By C. Brandon Chapman, College of Education

Rich-Lamb-80PULLMAN, Wash. – Rich Lamb, assistant professor of science education technology at Washington State University, has won a national early career award for his potential to make outstanding contributions to research and science education.

He is director of the College of Education’s Neurocognition Science Lab, which focuses on learning across the lifespan. His research explores how technology can be appropriately applied in a variety of classroom settings.

“I’m honored to receive this award, but what I really care about is making sure our college’s research helps our university solve the Grand Challenges we’ve identified,” said Lamb (https://education.wsu.edu/richard-lamb/).

The National Association for Research in Science Teaching bestows the Early Career Research Award within the first seven years after the winner completes a doctoral degree. Learn more at http://www.narst.org.
