Welcome to the MAGIC Lab!

The MAGIC Lab at the University of Wisconsin – Madison is led by Mitchell J. Nathan, Ph.D. We investigate grounded embodied learning (GEL) for STEM fields like mathematics, engineering and computer science. Principle to our investigations are randomized controlled trial interventions that allow participants to simulate the structures and functions of objects in problem spaces to understand concepts.  Hello Carol!

The School of Education’s Mitchell Nathan is among the 26 UW–Madison faculty winners of the 2022-23 Vilas Associates Competition, recognizing “new and ongoing research of the highest quality and significance.”
