Science Educator Research Fellowship

The Science Educator Research Fellowship provides K-12 science teachers with training in health research with a focus on pediatric approaches.  Participants conduct independent community-based or biomedical research under the supervision of a Sanford scientist in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  In addition to independent research, Fellows take part in a training program encompassing research methodology, developmental processes, environmental influences of pediatric disease, disease intervention strategies, scientist spotlights, and ethical conduct in research.  Fellows also receive inquiry-based instruction for application of biomedical research concepts and techniques.  At the culmination of the program, Fellows will appreciate and understand health research approaches for meaningful translation into their classroom activities.
