Research Experiences for Teachers

Three high-school teachers/MRSEC researchers attended the November 2004 MRS meeting. Michelle Strand, Pamela Rasmussen, and Steven Wignall (left to right) attended the conference and presented three papers. Michelle and Steven’s paper (co-authored by MRSEC researcher Diandra Leslie-Pelecky) won the Trophy Award for the best paper in the Symposium on Coupling Materials Science Education with Research and Technology.

Their paper, entitled “Research experiences for teachers in materials science: A case study” gave much practical advice and many guidelines about how researchers and teachers can effectively work together. This paper will be published in the Journal of Materials Education.
