We believe that all students should be able to link classroom learning to real world innovations,” said Courtney Dickinson, founder and director of Acera. “Working with relevant technology that is in the news, and engaging in deep discussions to understand these innovations, including how they work and why they matter, makes science labs meaningful and enables students to see a pathway for themselves as future scientists and innovators.”
