Eugenia Etkina Awarded Prize from Science Magazine
GSE Professor Eugenia Etkina and former student David Brookes (now a professor at Florida International University) collaborated to create a web site the “Rutgers Physics Teaching Technology Resource.” Because of the site’s innovation in helping students grasp physics concepts, it was selected to receive the Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE). Winning SPORE essays are published in Science in the last issue of each month. You can read their winning essay here. The journal Science is published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This prize was established to encourage innovation and excellence in education, as well as to encourage the use of high-quality on-line resources by students, teachers, and the public.
