A Holistic Approach to Math and Science Education


Are there ways to enhance math and science educational experiences for K-12 students to ensure that there is a pipeline for the future STEM workforce, while simultaneously addressing the knowledge, interests and needs of their parents, their educators and the community at large? Yes, there are.


JBC in the Classroom

Education-iconBY ELLIS BELL 

The challenges facing education in the molecular life sciences have been well documented. For a number of years, the biology community has advocated using primary literature, and much has been written about the effectiveness of journal clubs or literature-based courses. These courses are ideal for teaching both fundamentals and skills necessary for a major in biochemistry, molecular biology or biophysics.
