The Bridge to Biosciences Program
An Innovative Approach to Teaching
The Bridge to Biosciences program uses a combination of innovative teaching methodologies such as contextualized teaching, learning communities, 3D Learning (Integrated curriculum in Science, Math and Language), Project-Based Learning and, because the Bridge has succeeded where many others have failed before, it has been selected by Bio-Link for national dissemination through an NSF project.
