Math and Science Teachers Take Turn in Business World

Description

STARK EDUCATORS APPLY THEIR LESSONS
THEY CAN NOW GIVE STUDENTS EXAMPLES OF HOW CONCEPTS ARE USED IN 'REAL WORLD'


"James Russell peered through the microscope, squinting his eyes in determination.
The Massillon science teacher used tweezers to carefully search debris captured with
a sifter.

"There's one!" he exclaimed proudly, holding up the tweezers to show his prize: A
small bug.

"Here's another!" he said as he plucked another specimen.

Russell is one of 36 Stark County math and science teachers who became students
again this summer. He hopes to instill in his Washington High students the same
enthusiasm he felt during his internship at EnviroScience Inc. in Stow."
