GK–12 Program Lauded as Exemplary The Graduate Teaching Fellowships in K–12 Education (GK–12) program is a partnership between CRDG and the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology (EECB) program at the University of Hawai‘i. The National Science Foundation funded GK–12 program brings doctoral candidates in the sciences into science classrooms where they gain experience in teaching while involving students in their research. In addition to providing the educational component of the project for graduate fellows, CRDG with its Laboratory School, allows fellows a place to work and learn as they become teachers as well as scientists. Although 2006 was intended to be the final year of the project, its tremendous impact and success was rewarded with the only accomplishment-based renewal granted by NSF. The renewal allows the program to continue its work for another two years, allowing current research projects to continue and new fellows to be admitted to the program. In addition, the National Science Foundation singled out the EECB/CRDG GK–12 program as an example of an exemplary program in its annual report to Congress.
