Implementing and Evaluating Mentored Chemistry-Biology Technology Lab Modules to Promote Early Interest in Science

Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n6 p751-754 Jun 2011
Chemistry has become increasingly multidisciplinary. Starting in middle school and high school, however, the different disciplines are taught as distinct subjects and little effort is made to emphasize overlapping concepts. Development of innovative approaches to teaching science through the integration of technology is needed to provide students with a better learning experience that embraces multiple disciplines. Here, we describe an outreach and mentoring program between college and 7th grade students to: (i) encourage 7th grade students to pursue science and engineering degrees; (ii) provide the college students with mentoring experience; and (iii) assist teachers with state-of-the-art educational tools that enhance their teaching.
