Webcast Recap

Something powerful happens when teachers and students work side-by-side with scientists and engineers.  They come to understand the practice of science and engineering, while scientists and engineers learn to communicate their work in a way that makes sense to the public.  These types of partnerships are being recommended by a series of recent legislative initiatives and STEM organizations.  Our panel will discuss first-hand experience with teacher-scientist partnerships and how they can strengthen K-12 STEM education.
