Melissa Ramirez: Using New Tools to Teach Microbiology



I think I've always been really
interested in science and understanding the way that the world works. I was just
fascinated that there was this entire microbial world that we couldn't see. I
teach in the microbiology program, bringing more inclusive learning
practices to the STEM classroom. We are developing 3D-printed teaching tools for
use in the undergraduate classroom. The way that science has been taught has
been very one-way. When you give them a 3D-printed tool to interact with you get
a more engaged classroom. By giving students alternative ways to demonstrate
their understanding of information I hope that more students will see
themselves as scientists and persist in the field of science. I use technology to
teach students about microbiology, and that's how I think and do at NC State.
