Graduate students: Sign up for K-12 STEM outreach course BIO 533/494 this fall

Posted by on Jul 28, 2022 in Graduate Students, Opportunities, Outreach |

Founded and run by graduate students in Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences, Graduate Partners in Science Education’s, or GPSE’s, mission is to train graduate students to become better scientists, more experienced educators and superior science communicators through the design of science, technology, engineering and math lesson plans and projects. At the completion of this course, students will:

  • Create a science lesson aligned with their personal scientific interests and state educational standards.
  • Modify existing science lessons for remote instruction.
  • Communicate effective feedback to peers about their science lessons.
  • Communicate science to audiences of specific ages and skill levels.

A particular emphasis of this course is on learning teaching practices that support classroom inclusion. Should students be interested in further involvement with GPSE, the spring semester involves weekly outreach to local middle schools to present the designed lessons at after-school science groups.
