Science Curriculum Content for Real World Application

Abstract

"Through this National Science Foundation grant, the Billion Oyster Project has been initiated to combine Oyster Restoration in New York Harbor and situate this in community involvement - specifically with children in the New York City Department of Education. Research indicates that students who are engaged in real-world, handson science are more successful in science and have a deeper understand and appreciation of the content (Foley & McPhee, 2008). They are motivated and involved to a greater extent when actively engaged and intellectually interested. BOP, the acronym for this project, combines the community-based interest in the environmental conditions of New York Harbor with the educational needs of the students by creating a standards-based middle school science curriculum."
