abstract
As part of the Wyoming Science Teacher Education Program (WySTEP) I spent my summer assisting Clark Cotton with data collection and analysis with the focus of the research being kidney function in Black-tailed Prairie Dogs during arousal from hibernation.We looked a suit of chemicals needed for the proper functioning in kidney’s across various levels of arousal both in the kidney’s themselves as well as the blood plasma and urine. The second half of my presentation will be focused on how I integrated my summer research experiences into the classroom. I have found through my residency in teaching that in order to be able to teach science in a meaningful way, one must have had experience in practicing science. By having personal experiences with research and research methods I can help my students better make the connections between the scientific knowledge they learn in the classroom and the research that made that knowledge possible.
