Shake, Rattle, and Probe: Planned, Focused Studies in Biology Using Technology

The project will provide a full program focused on supporting the new high school science Biology NGSSS studies. We will work with biology teachers to ensure that our curriculum is aligned with these new standards and classroom teachers are confident and proficient teaching these benchmarks. Computers and other technology, like probeware, used within science classes allow students to work together gathering, manipulating and analyzing data during experiments, much like the activities performed by professional scientists.
