This weekend, Wheatley Science Research Coordinator, Alexis Blondrage, will be attending the Society for Science and the Public conference in Washington, D.C. The purpose of this conference is to bring together science research teachers at all levels of experience so they could share best practices, troubleshoot any challenges they face in supporting students in independent science research and learn more about the Intel Science Talent Search and the Society.
Ms. Blondrage was one of 100 teachers in the nation to be selected to attend this prestigious conference!
The conference topics are split up in large group sessions and break-out sessions. Sessions presented will include completing research in a high school lab, finding and placing students in summer programs, obtaining pre-approval for projects relating to humans and animals, combating plagiarism, reaching underserved students and many more.
Ms. Blondrage will be presenting an “Ethics in Research” at one of the break-out sessions.
Congratulations to Ms. Blondrage for this wonderful recognition!
