Event Details

 

Rx for Science Literacy is partnering with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to present The What, Where, How and Why of Health Science Research, a one-day workshop on Thursday, April 23, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at NIEHS in Research Triangle Park, N.C.

 

This workshop will feature an overview of NCABR's comprehensive Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual plus updates from biomedical scientists and physicians about the real-world applications of biomedical research.

 

The Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual was updated and expanded in 2013. The manual includes chapters on nanobiotechnology, regenerative medicine and vaccines and has been repackaged for easier use across all grade levels (elementary school, middle school, high school and CTE). It is accompanied by several new resources, including a curriculum crosswalk that shows connections to North Carolina standards across many curricula areas, the Next Generation Science Standards and a reading guide related to the Common Core standards.

 

The Rx for Science Literacy workshop series provides K-12 educators a unique opportunity to tour research facilities, hear from scientists about their latest research advances and take a home a free curriculum and other bioscience education materials.

 

Incentives for attending an Rx for Science Literacy workshop include:

  • 1 unit of certification renewal credit for North Carolina-certified educators (4 hours of additional work required)
  • Free supplemental curriculum and other bioscience education materials to use in the classroom
  • Free lunch
  • Substitute teacher support (up to $80)
