This assessment of learning from the WMDEP should be conducted immediately after the program's implementations.
Participants in this activity make a piece of plywood, or what the WMDEP calls a "Wood Sandwich." Within Piaget's concrete operational thought stage (Brainerd 1978), this activity involves the process called seriation that refers to the ability to put items in a series or sequence.
The WMDEP is designed to teach the importance of wood and the variety of ways in which it is used in everyday life.
By implementing the WMDEP into current curricula, not only are students and teachers receiving factual information and participating in hands-on scientific activities they are also gaining valuable experience with newer information technologies.
Some of these barriers could be overcome by developing a WMDEP for the teachers themselves.
