Transforming science education through research-driven innovation
Paul Strode recalls a time when he, like many others, was teaching an oversimplified version of genetics—a version that could contribute to students' misconceptions about the role genes play in human characteristics and abilities. "With Dr. Donovan's guidance, I am now teaching more complex models to help my students understand that genes matter, yes, but so does the environment and a lot of other ‘unknown' factors. Yet there are limits to our knowledge of genetics and it's important to teach what we don't know."
At BSCS, we believe science education is the key to making our world better. So we're grateful for researchers like Brian, who are willing to ask tough questions. And we're grateful for educators like Paul, who are willing to teach tough topics such as race and genetics.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that relies on external support, we always appreciate donations.
