Field Trip: Teresa Long, a graduate student at the Warner School of Education (left), and Claire Winchester ’13, a physics major from Austin, Texas, who’s also a preservice teacher at Warner (right), work with 12-year-olds Katelyn Doucet of Rochester’s School No. 42 and Isaiah Hepburn of Rochester’s School of the Arts to collect water samples from Lake Ontario as part of Warner’s Get Real! Science summer camp. Created by April Luehmann, associate professor of teaching and curriculum, Get Real! is designed to improve science teaching by engaging schoolchildren in an inquiry-based approach to problem solving. Each summer, area schoolchildren take part in the program’s camp, exploring scientific ideas and concepts through a series of experiments and other activities.
