With funding from the National Science Foundation, educators at the University of Iowa are revising the science curriculum and recruiting and training teachers to better educate Iowa students in the sciences.

“It’s teaching in a way that attaches an Iowa child to real-world relevance,” says Ted Neal, clinical associate professor in the UI College of Education, who’s helping to lead the curricular changes. “At that point, the child is hooked. She or he cares.”
