Participants will explore bias and common scientific misconceptions. Take home templates and protocols to assist in guiding these conversations with students. Learn how to strengthen understanding of grades 5-12 science standards by weaving together hands-on lessons, problem-solving, and curriculum designed by the National Center for Science Education.
