SMU professor Louis Jacobs honored with prestigious award from Texas science teachers
Date:10/31/2012

Whether hunting dinosaur bones, examining the science of evolution or mentoring students, SMU Earth Sciences Professor Louis L. Jacobs earns high marks from Texas K-12 science teachers.

The 7,200-member Science Teachers Association of Texas, STAT, is honoring Jacobs for his significant contributions to advance quality science education.

A world-recognized vertebrate paleontologist, Jacobs has been selected to receive the prestigious 2012 Skoog Cup. Jacobs is a professor in SMU's Roy M. Huffington Department of Earth Sciences in Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences and is president of SMU's Institute for the Study of Earth and Man.

STAT presents the Skoog Cup annually to a deserving faculty or staff member at a Texas college or university. Recipients are chosen for a sustained record of leadership in science education, advocacy for quality K-12 science education for all students, contributions to professional science organizations, and development of effective programs for pre-service and in-service teachers of science.

Jacobs was nominated by Texas science teachers, including leaders of the Texas Earth Science Teachers Association, TESTA, which is a subgroup of STAT.

"Dr. Jacobs has been a stalwart supporter of TESTA and Earth science education," said Alexia Hueske Bieniek, past president of TESTA. "He has been our strongest link between Earth science in the classroom and Earth science in the research world. If TESTA needs a speaker, a field-based workshop or field trip, we can rely on Dr. Jacobs to be there no matter where 'there' might be."

Jacobs began working with TESTA in 1997 when he partnered with the Fort Worth Museum of History and Science to launch the Lone Star Dinosaur Field Institute for Teachers. The teachers recovered a dinosaur from the hard sandstone of central Texas, then turned the experience into classroom activities. The massive dinosaur was later named Paluxysaurus jonesi, and
