The eighth annual “Science of Wondering - A research symposium“ was held on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum.

Student Interns

It was impressive to see the action research projects presented by teacher education candidates in the School of Education at Baylor University at the eighth annual science of wondering research symposium held on April 14, 2016 at the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum. Even more incredible is the time, energy and compassion these student teacher interns have devoted to classrooms across Waco. The event was the culmination of semester-long research by teacher candidates who have studied with clinical instructors, mentor teachers, and Baylor faculty on Professional Development (PDS) campuses in Waco ISD partner schools.

ATLAS Academy Teachers

The teacher education candidates were not the only “students” with research to display. To prove that learning is a lifelong process, nine teachers from Waco ISD’s ATLAS Academy have been working with mentors from Baylor University’s School of Education to develop action research projects. These teachers presented the results of their research at the science of wondering research symposium alongside Baylor’s teacher education candidates who were also presenting action projects as a prerequisite for graduation.
