Biomedical Research for Arizona Teachers
The Science Education Partnership Award Program
In order to understand and be able to teach effectively about modern biology, teachers must have a thorough background in the concepts that unify the field, and they must also understand and be able to communicate about research process that leads to new discoveries. When teachers want to bring an element of "real-life science" into the classroom in order to engage their students, they often find that they are limited by a lack of material or financial resources, since the materials necessary to do modern biology in the classroom can be very costly.
This project aims to address several issues that can interfere with teachersí ability to teach about modern biomedical sciences. Through an award from the Science Education Partnerships Program at the National Institutes of Health, we:
