Ecoregions, Human Development and Protein Structure

I see potential here for integrating these tools into introductory biology courses.  My students mostly don’t know or care about what ecoregions are.  Will they care more if they can work in groups and look at aspects of ecoregions and … Continue reading

Day 1 Reflections

The data literacy session were incredibly useful tools to learn and explore for our purposes of developing K12 science outreach curricula. We’ve been discussing a variety of interdisciplinary project-based lessons that could incorporate these tools. Our group project will focus … Continue reading
