Science Teachers Needed to Review Data Science Learning Resources!

As part of our ongoing Data Science–Driven Science Education (DSDSE) project, LabXchange has been developing online resources for students and educators focused on connecting data science to biology and environmental science. In collaboration with LabXchange, the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES) is currently recruiting high school teachers to pilot curriculum materials (“assets”) which were developed during the first two years of this effort by LabXchange and a group of co-development teachers.

The curricula that have been developed apply data science to pressing real-world challenges in biotechnology and climate change while also highlighting stories of scientists, including Department of Defense researchers, who use data science in their careers. The student curricula developed through this project will authentically engage learners at the intersection of life sciences, statistics, and computer science, building skills in computational thinking and data literacy through interactive virtual learning experiences.

The Asset Trial Cohort will include high school teachers with backgrounds in biology, chemistry, environmental science, statistics, or other relevant subject areas. This cohort will work with the existing Co-Development Teacher Cohort to test the newly developed learning assets and educator resources.

Stipend: $75.00 for each asset and educator resource pairing reviewed

Time Commitment: 3 hours per review
