2021 Update: Bringing hands-on science into the middle school classroom

This past summer, Team Echinacea took part in filming a video series aimed at highlighting the work being done by The Echinacea Project. These videos are designed to be integrated into a middle school science classroom to enhance a Nature of Science unit. By integrating these videos into a Nature of Science unit, students can see that science and experimental is not just something that they learn about in the classroom, but something that is the backbone of all scientific discoveries and is practiced by scientists every day.

Going forward, these videos will be used to springboard ideas for hands-on research projects to be completed by middle school students as part of the curriculum.
