Bell pursues a cognitive and cultural program of research across diverse environments focused on how people learn in ways that are personally consequential to them. He has studied everyday expertise and cognition in science and health, the design and use of novel learning technologies in science classrooms, youth argumentation, culturally expansive science instruction, and scaled implementation of educational improvement. Bell is also currently editing a series of research- and practice-based tools for science education called STEM Teaching Tools.      The effort is providing resources for equity-focused improvements in science education.
