Welcoming Two New Educators!
After receiving the Small Business Innovation Research grant to develop VenomCoLab we have hired two outstanding educators to consult with us on the content! They both have years of experience with middle school students and with a variety of science areas. Welcome to Killer Snails, Ken Andersen and Ashley McGrath!
The Killer Snails team always hires at least two educators to provide content expertise as well as to provide feedback on the development of our products. Teacher voice is one of the most valuable tools we incorporate into all our products.
VenomCoLab is a collaborative science experience where students, in distinct roles as scientists, work together to find ingredients in venom that can be used in medicines for humans. Each group of students has a goal of studying one type of venomous organism like marine snails, snakes, sea anemones, or scorpions to find a potential treatment for health problems like pain, cancer, blood pressure, or diabetes.
Looking forward to working with Ken and Ashley on this new product!
