Engaging Young Children in Science and Literacy Learning: One Biology Majors Career Path
From Jeff Layne
Dr. Char Moffit
School of Education
When it comes to science, how are kids educated in our schools? Why are districts restricting the amount of science we teach? Dr. Char Moffit, a biology major strived to expose her students to hand-on science as much as she could. By brining in caterpillars, sea urchins, and other organisms to study, she changed the direction of science education in the district, sparking an interest in kids to learn more about how the world works. Moffit shows how giving children personal experience with biology and other sciences can change their lives, inspiring them to dig deeper and ask the important questions.
