We at Society for Science believe that there is not one specific “correct” way to lead students in STEM research projects because of the diverse student needs and resources available in any given area. We rely upon our experienced teachers and mentors who share their expertise with others and we thank them for their generosity in creating these webinars. We encourage you to adapt their methods to best meet the needs of your students.
