The McLaughlin Research Institute/Howard Hughes Medical Institute Teacher Cohort This site is a clearing house of labs, activities and information developed by the teacher cohort during the past three summers of work developing curriculum and designing activities to promote science education and STM (Science, Technology, and Math) literacy and career choice. Teachers spend a summer doing original research in a biomedical lab, and then are invited to spend a second year working together designing lessons, labs and curriculum to connect the research experience to the classroom. Inquiry and 5E model labs have been developed and tried out with fellow teachers and then with students. Some material has also been borrowed from other sites all of which allow educational use and implementation by teachers.
