James Monroe Science Teacher to Participate in Howard Hughes Medical Institute Curriculum Planning

Turtle Haste, as science teacher at James Monroe Middle School, has been invited to participate in curriculum planning for science education programs developed by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. 

Haste is one of a handful of teachers around the country who were selected to generate ideas and help develop curriculum for the education resources distributed by HHMI and its BioInteractive.org website. HHMI is a Chevy Chase, Md.,-based nonprofit medical research organization. Its mission includes education initiatives aimed at engaging middle, high and college students in discovery research. 

Teachers also will be able to attend HHMI’s 2012 Holiday Lectures on Science in November, where they will hear earth science-related talks from three university professors. 

The educational materials that Haste and other teachers will help develop will be posted on the BioInteractive.org website and on 100,000 DVDs that will be distributed around the world, free of charge, to educators and the public.
