Teachers participate and collaborate with leading researchers in the area of primate and human functional morphology, CSATS science educators, and educators from across Pennsylvania.
During this in-person workshop, teachers will explore different facets of the agricultural industry through working with automated alternative growth systems (ex. hydroponics), touring two different laboratory facilities, and learning about current research on food safety and medicinal properties of plant products.
Shaping Authentic Practices by Engaging in Modeling of A Topic with Teachers to Explore Research in Science (SHAPE MATTERS) is funded by the NIH Science Education Partnership Award. The program has three objectives.
