About this Program
This NSF funded activity will provide training and research experiences to high school teachers giving them the needed skills to teach an innovative new course: Biology: A Molecular Approach. This course uses two proven methods to improve student engagement: case-based methods and investigative learning.  Additionally, the grant will provide roughly $10,000 in biotechnology equipment in the first year.  Supplies ($2000/year) are also provided to offer this course for all 3 years of the grant.  The grant also funds monies for teachers to participate in workshops at the National Center for Case Based Learning in Buffalo to hone their methods in case-based learning.
