The following are a few examples their accomplishments:
A series of teacher workshops headed by the education team of Annmarie Ward and Leah Bug are provided throughout the project's duration. One goal of these workshops are to help teachers understand the practices of science by working alongside the scientists. With support from the education team, they design classroom activities which replicate these scientific practices. As a result, teachers develop open-inquiry methods of instruction, using both Buruli ulcer disease and West Nile Virus as linking topics in the classroom.
As a project for their World Studies class, high school students were required to research as aspect of Ghanian culture. The students presented their knowledge to 5th and 6th grade students as a learning activity during "Ghana Day." This is an example of fostered learning, in which upper level students taught younger students in an interactive and comprehensive way.
High School Teacher Jacqui Wagner provided her Advanced Biology students the opportunity to make science connections through field work. The kayaking trip allowed students to learn about water quality issues. The trip involved kayaking down Penns Creek, and making stops to investigate water-impacted environments. Students conducted chemical testing of water, collecting data which they analyzed and incorporated into their research upon return to the classroom.
