Faculty Members Travel Abroad During Spring Break

Professors Jeff Blanchard, Joe Mileti, and Jen Paulhus spent some, or all, of spring break working on research outside of the United States.

Jeff Blanchard visited a collaborator in Edinburgh for a week of intensive writing for an ongoing project. The trip to Scotland paid off with a 50 page paper submitted at the end of Spring Break.

"When you get something right in lab, it's like making a birdie or getting a one-putt," says Stephanie Spahr '14. She joins her mentor, chemistry professor Stephen Sieck, to share stories about "failed" experiments, organic chemistry, and finding success in the top programs in the country.

The Science Teaching and Learning Group (STaLG) is an open discussion group that has been meeting regularly for a number of years. Our goal is to provide a place where science faculty from all disciplines, as well as others involved science education at Grinnell, can come together for informal conversations, brainstorming and strategy-sharing on a variety of topics in science teaching and learning.
