The Columbian

LINCOLN — Discovery Middle School teacher Ron Hall was selected by the Society for Science & the Public to receive a STEM research kit. Valued at $1,000, the kits encourage students to pursue hands-on, project-based science research in a home environment and are distributed through the society’s STEM Research Grants program. Hall has taught for 20 years, 15 of those in science. He hopes the grant will give his students the ability to see themselves as scientists who “use science to solve problems for the greater good,” according to a news release. “I am looking forward to using this grant to create a bond with my current students, and teach them how to use science to help them solve problems they see in their community, nation, and world,” Hall said. “Additionally, I want to them to see science as a way to understand and help humankind and break down walls of division between different groups.”
