    Science Education for Incarcerated Youth

    To kick off season 12, Lab Out Loud looks for inspiration in science education from an unlikely classroom setting - within the juvenile justice system. Michael Krezmien and Martina Nieswandt (both Associate Professors at the University of Massachusetts Amherst) join co-hosts Brian Bartel and Dale Basler to talk about Project RAISE: Reclaiming Access to Inquiry-based Science Education. Developed with the help of a three million dollar NSF grant, Project RAISE delivers an innovative digital biology curriculum to incarcerated students in the Massachusetts juvenile justice system. Through a unique iPad app developed by Project RAISE that adheres to principles of universal design for learning (UDL), students engage with science through project-based inquiry activities and virtual laboratory experiences. Listen to the show to hear more about Project RAISE, how it addresses challenging factors within the justice system and how it adapts the learning environment for various learning styles and educational needs.

    Supporting Science Education with Out of Pocket Teacher Expenses

    As science teachers are preparing for the summer, many will be planning lessons and purchasing supplies for their classes next year. But just how much do science teachers spend on their classes from their own personal funds? After conducting a nationwide survey of middle and high school science teachers, a research team at North Carolina State University has an answer for us. Their research revealed that 70 percent of science teachers do not have adequate funding to support science instruction for their students, leading to almost 95% of science teachers spending their own money to support learning in their classroom. To discuss their research and its implications for science instruction in urban, rural and suburban schools, Emily Cayton (Graduate Research Assistant) and M. Gail Jones (professor of STEM Education) join co-hosts Brian Bartel and Dale Basler to close out season 11 of Lab Out Loud.

    Original Research from Emerging Student Investigators

    Do you have middle and high school students doing original research? Consider connecting them with the open-access Journal of Emerging Investigators for guidance and a chance to publish their findings. Jamilla Akhund-Zade (Co-Editor-In-Chief) and Nico Wagner (Director of Outreach) join Lab Out Loud to talk about the Journal of Emerging Investigators and how it can guide young scientists in the research process that ultimately helps them develop the skills they need to publish their own research.

    Place-Based Education: An Ecology Unit

    For the third episode in a three-part series on place-based education in science, Lab Out Loud welcomes Chris Wyland to the show. Chris is a middle school math and science teacher at the Cottonwood School of Civics and Science in Portland, where the focus of the entire school is encouraging exploration of the natural world and involvement in the local community through the arts and sciences. Continuing a discussion of place-based education in science, Chris joins co-hosts Brian Bartel and Dale Basler to explain this approach in an ecology unit where his middle school students are partnering with the Portland Parks and Recreation Department to apply their scientific knowledge to fieldwork that benefits their local community.
