Explore Authentic Data with Data Nuggets: An LDC-QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network

Category: Faculty Mentoring Network

The Life Discovery - Doing Science Biology Education Conference (LDC), Data Nuggets, and Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis project (QUBES) are pleased to offer a unique networking and professional development opportunity from September – November 2017 for faculty interested in bringing authentic research data into high school and undergraduate classrooms as part of the LDC Travel Awards funded by NSF.

Faculty will implement one or more selected Data Nuggets in their AP biology, introductory biology, or ecology courses. Originally developed as a collaboration between K-12 teachers and scientists, Data Nuggets are now widely used in K-16 classrooms. They are free activities that bring authentic research and data into the classroom, revealing to students how the process of science really works and increasing the connections between scientists and the public.
