Frank Pottenger and Sandra Shimabukuro continued to provide professional development in science to elementary teachers statewide in 2005 through the Hawai‘i Interactive Television System (HITS). In addition to specific sessions focused on the DASH program, they expanded the content this year to include some of the material on inquiry strategies developed for the Teaching Science as Inquiry program. This was the sixteenth year that weekly HITS sessions were offered several times each month to teachers throughout the state. With Sandy’s retirement the series will continue with other Science Section staff.
