Our bodies are home to more microbes than human cells. The balance of helpful to harmful microbes in our bodies can make us sick or healthy. The Biology of Human project focuses on helping people understand themselves by exploring scientific principles that underlie modern research in human biology.
Girls in Science: A Framework for Action by Liesl Chatman, Katherine Nielsen, Erin Strauss, and Kimberly Tanner with J Myron Atkin, Marjorie Bequette, and Michelle Phillips.
From 1994 – 2003, SEP led the Triad program with funding from the National Science Foundation. Triad brought scientists and teachers together to lead after-school science clubs with a focus on gender equitable science teaching. Participation in Triad required a commitment to extensive professional development on the part of both the teachers and scientists. The Triad community was highly collaborative, and participants together developed a framework for gender equitable science teaching and learning. This framework and reflections written by Triad teacher and scientist participants ultimately led to the publication in 2008 of Girls in Science: A Framework for Action by NSTA Press. Available through the NSTA Science Store.
