Lynne Zummo

Assistant Professor, University of Utah



Lynne is an Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences at the University of Utah and is the Curator of Learning Sciences at the Natural History Museum of Utah. Her research examines social, cultural, and cognitive influences on the learning process around controversial issues in science, such as climate change, and it argues for greater attention to the political culture and identity of science learners. Lynne uses mixed methods to understand how people think, learn, and teach about science. She works with pre-service and in-service teachers and aims to support all people in using science to make sense of their worlds in ways that fit with ideas of who they are.
