Grant aims to ignite inspiration and interest in science

With a $340,000 grant from the Ohio Board of Regents, Kent State University, Hiram College and the University of Akron will bring outstanding science teachers together with talented high school students and university faculty for a learning experience unlike any other. Students and teachers in school districts from Akron to the headwaters of the Cuyahoga River will be chosen to participate in a science-focused summer academy titled "Igniting Streams of Learning in Science."

The academy will use the Cuyahoga River not only as a model for environmental restoration but as an inspiration to the students who will hale from regions of the Cuyahoga watershed.

The project is one of 10 recently approved STEM and Foreign Language academies, all of which aim to encourage promising high school juniors and seniors to consider careers in secondary education in one of the state's focus areas, which include science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine instruction, and foreign languages.

Fifty students five from each of 10 school districts to be determined will join an outstanding high school science teacher from each district to work with faculty from partner institutions, including Kent State's Dr. Mary Louise Holly, professor of teaching, leadership, and curriculum studies, College of Education, Health and Human Services, and director of the Faculty Professional Development Center. Additionally, two core faculty members from Kent, Hiram and Akron will participate, along with undergraduate teaching assistants and resource personnel.
