Lancaster, PA — The Executive Council of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) has awarded The POGIL Project $5,000. The money is to be used for education and/or equipment and supplies involving the already existing aims of The POGIL Project.
The mission of The POGIL Project is to connect and support educators from all disciplines interested in implementing, improving, and studying student-centered pedagogies and learning environments.
"We are grateful to the SSP for its generous gift," said POGIL Project Director Rick Moog. "This will help us further our goal of an educational system in which effective student-centered instruction is the norm."
The Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh, along with its sister society, the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh, is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering science education in the Western Pennsylvania region. To that end, with support from Pittcon – The Pittsburgh Conference, they support member education programs, teacher and student awards, a wide variety of educational programs, and grant programs for high schools, colleges, and beginning university professors.
