The technique of concept mapping was developed by Joseph D. Novak and his research team at Cornell University in the 1970s as a means of representing the emerging science knowledge of students.

What is the meaning of "emerging science" in this context?

  • emerging science-knowledge. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Dec 8 '17 at 18:12

You seem to be parsing the phrase "emerging science knowledge" as [[emerging science]knowledge], when you should actually be parsing it [emerging [science knowledge]] in this case.

In other words, what is emerging is the knowledge of science, rather than knowledge about emerging (i.e. new) science.
