GK-12 in China:
Five GK-12 fellows and five
GK-12 middle school teachers
will spend a week working on
science inquiry with the
Jiangsu Institute of Education
and a local K-12 school. Each
fellow will undertake
collaborative research in a
Chinese university for at
least 2 weeks. Check out
blogs written by a teacher
and a staff member and read
a short synopsis of the trip.
