[Source: UA News] – Science teachers are charged with conveying the technical and often dubious notions of science to new generations of students, but with changes in researchers’ understanding of science topics and new innovations emerging each year, how do the teachers keep their own knowledge current?

The BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona is helping K-12 science teachers keep up with the pace of research and innovation.

BIO5 recently hosted the 4th annual Arizona K-12 Science Teacher Symposium, which provided teachers with eight credits toward the annual recertification of their teaching licenses. More than 150 science teachers from 34 communities around the state attended the event, making BIO5 a focal point for networking among teachers.
