The Micro- and Nano-space Explorations of Health and Disease (MNEHD) project is part of the University of Southern Maine’s initiative to incorporate the health science-related studies of microbiology, nanotechnology, and electron microscopy into bioscience education.
EDC is directing the evaluation of this professional development project to measure its effectiveness to enhance:
- Teachers’ awareness of and attitudes toward the microbial world
- Teachers’ understanding of particular science skills and concepts
- Teachers’ ability to implement curricula in their classrooms that increase student interest and knowledge
