In honor of KGNU’s Kid’s Week, we go to the Boulder County Science Fair with How on Earth’s Tom McKinnon. In turns out three of the five students Tom interviewed before the judging began ended up as winners at the science show! Then, we look at CSAPs-Colorado’s Student Assessment Program. That style of standardized test for Reading, Writing, Math and Science is being phased out, in favor of The Colorado Growth Model that’s so innovative, it’s being adopted in several other states. How on Earth’s Shelley Schlender interviews cognitive scientist Bill Bonk, who’s on the team developing the Colorado Growth Model, which you can see at schoolview.org.
Hosts: Joel Parker and Tom McKinnon
