You can "borrow" cockroaches for the lessons, or adopt the as permanent residents of your classroom.

  • * Ask Marjie for more information, or

  • * request her to bring this to your classroom.

When are we ever going to use this stuff anyway?

The Fellows are eager to work with you to show how what you teach is connected and relevant to their work in the real world.

"We don't come to teach your lessons, we come to show how what you teach is relevant to what we doing in the real world."
