Algae in High School

With the support of a NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) supplement, Rick McCourt and John Hall are working with Gen Nelsen of Germantown Friends School in Philadelphia, PA, to introduce high school students to algae and molecular biology. Gen worked with John and Rick for ten weeks during the summer of 2011 to learn about algae and molecular techniques. Since then, she’s worked hard to incorporate what she learned into the science curriculum at Germantown Friends School. Rick and John have had the opportunity to work in the classroom with students from Germantown Friends to teach them more about algae! See more here.
