About The Program
The CASE (Changing Alaska Science Education) for enhancing understanding of climate change program partners science graduate teaching fellows with K-12 teachers in the state of Alaska. Graduate fellows work in the classroom alongside of teachers to help teach hands-on science and to present research in a real world context.
Program goals include:
1) improving science communication skills among graduate students;
2) engaging and inspiring K-12 students to follow science careers;
3) demonstrating that science is stimulating, creative, and fun.
Past fellow Sophie Gilbert was a finalist in the national GK-12 contest “Science in a minute” for her podcast entitled “Predators and Prey: the race for survival.” Click here to see the podcasts and access other educational materieals based on Spophie's research!
