TAILIEUCHUNG - INTEGRATING RESEARCH AND EDUCATION BIOCOMPLEXITY INVESTIGATORS EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES

In recent years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has been work ing to develop closer links between the funding of scientific research and increasing public understanding of science. Its efforts to improve public understanding of science have focused on schools, colleges, and universities but have included support for museums, aquariums, and other programs. Those efforts are designed to prepare future scientists and educators, as well as to inform the public about how science affects society | INTEGRATING RESEARCH AND EDUCATION BIOCOMPLEXITY INVESTIGATORS EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES Bridget K.
