Sarah Kapenga – Testimonial

[blockquote align=”center” variation=”red”]Using the Junco Project in my class has brought to life a topic that students used to believe was as dead as Charles Darwin himself.  They are fascinated to not only see current research by “regular guys” (as they would say), but to themselves be hands-on with the data and research as the story unfolds.  They are part of the discovery process, and they feel included as part of the model building process.  As a teacher, there is simply no better vehicle to meeting the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) than the Junco Project.  I hope it inspires similar projects in other areas of science so that students can have this more experiential learning format, and so that they can buildup a strong scientific reasoning skill set.”[/blockquote]
