From July 6-10, 2020, 40 K-12 science teachers representing 10 counties participated in the Scientist in Every Florida School Nature of Science virtual professional development workshop.

Throughout the week, teachers worked with scientists to develop lesson plans that help students better understand what’s known in education as the “nature of science,” or the tools, theories and skills used to carry out research.

Below are the K-12 lessons developed through our teacher-scientist collaborations throughout the week. Please click on the title to access the resource.
