Pathways to Science Teaching is a grant-funded program at Western Michigan University designed to improve the preparation of science teachers. Each summer, eight undergraduates work with WMU faculty and Kalamazoo Public Schools teachers to conduct water quality research and teach lessons based on their research to grade K-8 youth in WMU summer camps. Here we share an overview of the program and participant-created lessons emphasizing NGSS science and engineering practices for middle school grades.
