Dr. C in the University of Toledo news!
Check out this news story about Dr. C in the University of Toledo news! In partnership with NASA and its additional $11.4 million in support, a researcher at The University of Toledo is expanding his work to transform how K-12 science is taught in the United States using more hands-on experiments and direct observations to solve environmental problems. “The main goal of our program is to have students create and do real science projects — authentic science, not something staged in a lab,” Czajkowski said. “Some of the projects students have done are very cutting edge.” Read the whole story here: http://news.utoledo.edu/index.php/01_22_2021/nasa-extends-utoledo-led-project-innovating-k-12-science-curriculum  >>
