The University of Nebraska-Lincoln hosted "Making Connections in Science" with the Lincoln Public Schools on Aug. 16 to provide professional development for LPS science teachers. Professor Jon Pedersen from UNL's Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education and Kirsten Smith, LPS science curriculum specialist, welcomed the teachers and introduced the day's agenda. Smith discussed the new State Standards, a timeline for NeSA-S, and information about the CRTs that will still be administered this year. The latest version of the science standards can be found online at the Nebraska Department of Education.

Breakout sessions were presented by the following UNL departments and faculty members: Chemistry (Mark Griep); Biochemistry (Madhavan Soundararajan); Health Sciences (Marilyn Schnepf); Weather and Climate (Ken Dewey and Natalie Umphlett); CASNR (Tiffany Heng-Moss and Don Lee); Biological Sciences (Chad Brassil and Scott Gardner); Natural Resources (Dave Gosselin); Physics (Dan Claes and Kevin Lee); Earth and Atmospheric Sciences/ANDRILL (David Harwood); Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education (Pedersen, Elizabeth Lewis, Jim Rynearson, Peggy Tilgner and Ron Bonnstetter); and Center for Materials and Nanoscience (David Sellmyer and Terese Janovec).
