Development of Teaching and Mentoring Skills in Students
The INBRE undergraduate and graduate student’s knowledge, communication, and leadership skills will be transmitted through the transfer of technology and biomedical science ideas from the INBRE institutional environment to High School (pre-college) teachers through the development of scientific training modules. The core of this particular activity is the integration of research and education skills of participating students at the INBRE institutions as they mentor high school teachers in STEM related biomedical activities held at the INBRE institution.
This activity will be conducted over a period of two consecutive days, each day including two 3-hour instructional intervals followed by a one-hour discussion.
Mentors: A total of 12 INBRE undergraduate students and graduate students, supervised by their professors, to become mentors while working as a team with pre-college teachers
Teachers: A total of 12 teachers will be involved in the activity
Mentors: $140 total of salary for 14 hours. One-day lunch for the participants.
Teachers: The transfer of technology and biomedical science ideas from the INBRE institutional environment to High School (pre-college) teachers through the development of scientific training modules. One-day lunch for the participants in the activity.
