Lollie Garay and Anne Marie Wotkyns Author Journal Article about the Importance of Teacher-Scientist Partnerships
Lollie Garay (TAS, 2009) and Anne Marie Wotkyns (TAS, 2010), in addition to being NOAA Teachers at Sea, also participated in the PolarTREC program (Teachers and Researchers Experiencing and Collaborating). In a journal article for Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene, Ms. Garay and Ms. Wotkyns wrote about how teachers and researchers work together to enhance student learning based on their experiences with teacher-scientist partnerships.
“Today we know that students learn better when they experience scientific inquiry more personally. Exposure to research can therefore enhance learning about science.”
