Research Interests

My interests lie in the areas of science education (K-12 as well as at the University level), and in adaptations of science activities for learners with mobility, learning or sensory impairments. Recent professional activities have included a K-12 Faculty Training Institute to help school districts implement and incorporate the state science frameworks in their curricula. Dr. De Luca is also a scholar with The National Faculty.
