Teaching risk assessment in undergraduate chemistry using BCTC  Pharr, Daniel Y.
148. Bits and pieces, 49. The role of many scientists has become one of making policy decisions based on scientific data that is often incomplete and ambiguous. Having students go through the types of decisions that such scientists need to make by using the BCTC computer simulations can be a useful exercise to teach students how to research, collect, analyze, and interpret data.

Research experiences for high school science groups: A model for collaboration between high schools and colleges  Bozzelli, J.; Greenberg, A.; Levine, D.
The paper discusses an interactive project that arose from the need of science teachers to add to and exercise their existing knowledge of science and thus grow and become better teachers. Through their renewal, the teachers would be able to motivate and challenge their classes once again.
