To kick off season 12, Lab Out Loud looks for inspiration in science education from an unlikely classroom setting - within the juvenile justice system. Michael Krezmien and Martina Nieswandt (both Associate Professors at the University of Massachusetts Amherst) join co-hosts Brian Bartel and Dale Basler to talk about Project RAISE: Reclaiming Access to Inquiry-based Science Education. Developed with the help of a three million dollar NSF grant, Project RAISE delivers an innovative digital biology curriculum to incarcerated students in the Massachusetts juvenile justice system. Through a unique iPad app developed by Project RAISE that adheres to principles of universal design for learning (UDL), students engage with science through project-based inquiry activities and virtual laboratory experiences. Listen to the show to hear more about Project RAISE, how it addresses challenging factors within the justice system and how it adapts the learning environment for various learning styles and educational needs.
