Scientists learn from kids, kids become scientists in new MU effort

esearch and education. Galen said one part of the program will feature elementary students writing competitive grant proposals to bring new science resources to their classrooms. These proposals will be critiqued by professional scientists that will evaluate the proposals based on strength of writing and value of the proposed investment for science learning.

"Writing a grant proposal requires English, math, research and persuasion skills, which plays across the board for what teachers want their students to learn," Galen said. "They're going to compete for the best project for their school and that's a real motivator for kids. Additionally, by highlighting Missouri's natural habitats, the Show Me Nature theme gives students and teachers a framework for science that resonates with their daily lives," said Galen.
