Meet Our Team

Lucas Education Research operates as a division of the George Lucas Educational Foundation. Established in 2013 as part of the larger operating Foundation, Lucas Education Research invites selected educational experts and research firms to collaborate on the design and evaluation of rigorous project-based learning in K-12 schools.

We strive to define the key design principles for rigorous projects and to study the necessary conditions and factors of the school ecosystem for the effective and sustained implementation of this approach to teaching and learning.

The George Lucas Educational Foundation is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from job seekers who will contribute to our diversity.
