Ms. Deeb has joined NITARP as part of the 2014 class.
The 2014 class has been announced! This year, we had many fewer spots to offer, and still 4.5 times as many educators applied as we had spots. Caroline Odden and John Gibbs will be our mentor educators for this class. Look for results of their projects in January 2015!
When I returned home, I shared some of the quotes and images I collected while at AAS with my students. I mentioned the fact that even researchers get confused and stuck sometimes (I cited examples from sitting in talks and walking around the poster sessions), as do teachers. I think I always worried that admitting to students that science isn’t set in stone, and that scientists don’t know all the answers (and therefore neither do I) would shake their confidence in me; instead, I think I’ve been failing to empower my students to be able to sort through, struggle through, and find answers on their own.
