Name of Engagement
Dr. Kerry Cresawn
In 2014, Dr. Kerry Cresawn developed a traveling life science outreach program called“Madison Discovery”, with the goal of peaking an early interest in science by making the science enrichment experiences often only available to select populations of students accessible to all students regardless of academic readiness, socioeconomic factors, language and cultural barriers. The bridge to her research and her work with K-12 students is her interest in preparing future K-12 science teachers. She teaches several biology content and pedagogy courses for future teachers and invites future biologists and future teachers to work collaboratively as part of Madison Discovery.
