From Education Week: Hidden Gems for Helping Science Educators

"Seeking to extend learning beyond the classroom can be challenging, but this is where local universities and labs can step in," writes NSCL outreach manager Zach Constan in the December 5, 2007 issue of Education Week.

Constan continues: "As Arden L. Bement Jr., the director of the National Science Foundation, told K-12 teachers in the October 2006 issue of The Physics Teacher The Physics Teacher, 'You are supported by a nationwide network of NSF-funded research professionals who are eager to offer hands-on experience.' Outreach programs throughout this network can not only help teachers advance science education in the classroom, but can also save them money and time in the process."
