Joshua E. Neimark Memorial Travel Assistance Award winners
Date:2/15/2010

Three newly named beneficiaries of the Joshua E. Neimark Memorial Travel Assistance Endowment are investigating an unusual program to spark young children's interest in insects, an effort to fine-tune DNA analysis, and a strategy that might someday suggest a way to lower the cost of a key HIV medication.

The award recipients will receive partial financial support to attend America's largest general scientific conference, the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 18-22 February in San Diego, Calif. (See www.aaas.org/meetings.)

All three recipients Michele A. Korb, a new faculty member in the Department of Teacher Education at California State University, East Bay; Kim Har Wong, a University of Massachusetts Boston (UMB) graduate student; and Timothy D. Panosian, a Vanderbilt University graduate student submitted posters selected to be presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting.

Korb's poster presentation highlights a science teaching strategy called "Bugscope" and its use in classrooms from kindergarten through fifth grade. Through the Bugscope program, students and teachers can use an advanced electron microscope, or ESEM (environmental scanning electron microscope) to study insects and arachnids, Korb explained. Classrooms mail insects to the Bugscope program coordinators, then log onto an Internet browser to examine their prepared specimens by remotely operating the ESEM.

"I wanted to attend the AAAS Annual Meeting to strengthen my contacts with a well-connected community of scientists and educators who are convening for the common goal of increasing science literacy," Korb said. "The meeting will allow me to share information related to preparing future elementary science teachers, and to explore new ideas that may inform positive changes in my teaching and research habits."
