As a researcher, Sonia participated in creating the interview protocol, and conducted semi-structured interviews for PreK-2nd grade children in IA, AL, ID and TX. Her Pre and Post test interviews brought significant contribution to the Ramps and Pathways project. She also created and analyzed the coding system with the Physics Professor, Dr. Larry Escalada. Sonia, a native of Japan and raised in Brazil, believes that there are no boundaries when she observes children truly engaged in good physical science curriculum. The smile of children excited in Ramps and Pathways also brings her a smile and passion to her work.
