As schools are working to blend teaching or go completely online, what about science? Isn't science supposed to be totally hands-on? In today's session, we interview Chris Anderson, an instructional technology coach and the executive producer of Science Around Cincy, a web series that features the scientists and engineers in the Cincinnati area. He reflects on how to use resources to teach science and how to make it as hands-on as possible even at home. We also reflect on what is happening in our areas with the coronavirus outbreak and how schools and teachers are preparing. (Recorded Tuesday, March 10, 2020.)
