Reflection: Co-Teaching Cell Differentiation - Section 2: Explore


The last four years I have been fortunate to work collaboratively with two local universities.  The programs provided by both universities have allowed visiting scientists to come to my classroom and expose my students to cutting edge science.  Through ongoing collaboration we have created engaging lessons that have exposed students to various areas of science.  One of the most exciting outcomes of this partnership has been an increase in students wanting to pursue a career in both science and engineering.  It is not a surprise that there continues to be an underrepresentation of both women and racial minorities in STEM related fields.  I hope that these type of programs continue to be available to all learners but especially to student populations that feel that they don't have the required skills to be successful in STEM careers.
