Producing science teachers who can keep up with rapidly advancing fields and also inspire students is not an easy task. With a grant from the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Scholarship Program, the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis is challenging science majors--individuals who enjoy and appreciate science--to transfer their enthusiasm and knowledge to students in middle-school and high-school classrooms.
