ASBMB wins National Science Foundation grant to enhance K-12 science education
Date:4/10/2012

veloping and incorporating hands-on activities and projects related to biochemistry and molecular biology into their classrooms. The projects require collaborations between the teachers and college scientists.

A similar mini-grant program was conducted by ASBMB in 2011. For that effort, more than 50 applications from teachers and scientists from across the country were received. One grant winner used the money to purchase blood-pressure and heart-rate monitors so students could collect data and plot their results. Another project involved the isolation, discovery and characterization of bacteriophages in the environment, teaching students about the importance of maintaining lab notebooks.

Stevens-Truss emphasized that the materials needed for such activities rarely are expensive, so even small seed grants go a long way. "They can use simple things like coffee filters and pipe cleaners to teach separations, for example," she explained. "These teachers already know what the learning outcomes are, but they may not know how to make them actually happen. If they don't know what to do, their faculty partners can give them ideas on how to incorporate activities."

The forthcoming events will include talks by scientists and educators with experience in developing science, technology, engineering and math outreach partnerships. The speakers also will cover how to use online communication tools to engage the public and how to implement research experiences at the junior high and high school levels.
