Posted 05/03/2018 09:14AM

US science teacher Troy Weaver was one of only 10 teachers selected to participate in the Science, Teachers and Research Summer (STaRS) Experience -- a two-week summer professional development program designed and conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

STaRS participants will conduct biomedical research investigations in laboratories and will learn from NIEHS scientists and guest speakers from Triangle universities about various issues in biomedical and environmental sciences, such as environmental triggers of diseases, translation of basic research to clinical application, gene editing, genetically modified organisms and bioethics. In addition, teachers will use what they have learned from this PD to develop classroom projects.
