Worlds of Connections Co-hosts Teachers and Researchers for the Annual Science Connector

On August 9, the Worlds of Connections team—along with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL)’s Office of Research and Economic Development and Center for Science, Mathematics and Computer Education—and Lincoln Public Schools co-hosted the “Science Connector” as part of the annual contractual professional learning day for teachers.

Twenty-two UNL faculty and research groups and over 150 teachers gathered at the University of Nebraska State Museum to attend the event, which brings together K–12 science teachers and university researchers to discover ways of bringing current UNL science into local classrooms to enhance science education in Lincoln.
