HUMANIZING SCIENCE 2018 - 2019
VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS/PHOTOGRAPHS AND FIELD TRIP
Through a partnership between the University of Arkansas researchers and Haas Hall Academy teachers, science activities developed by students for students are fostered while highlighting the personalization/humanizing of science. The intent is to achieve self-sustaining activities into the future. The electronic content is posted to reach a broader audience and for public dissemination and comment. The goals are aligned with the mission of the National Science Foundation, namely to increase scientific literacy and public engagement with science and technology, improve STEM education and educator development, enhance infrastructure for education, and in the long term, prepare young people for a more globally
competitive STEM workforce.
The 2018-2019 academic year focused on establishing a Science Club at HHA in collaboration with researchers at the University of Arkansas, which is at the core of expanding the humanizing science project.
