The Project

Project Title Teaching Teachers to Investigate Bugscope
Insects To Study Same as spring? No new ones to send :(
Project Description In this course, I would like to introduce preservice high school teachers to the BugScope website as a teaching tool. As of today, the course has a cohort of 7 students enrolled. They are graduate students that have about one year of schooling left before they eneter the workforce as teachers, hopefully in the Washington area. It is my intention to introduce this technology to all of the preservice teachers at WSU moving forward.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? As a recent grad of UIUC, I attended the Open House at Beckman and talked to the scientists involved with the project.
