Veteran Fannie Lou teacher Molly Shabica has long been engaging students in real-world research and Science in her classrooms.

According to their article, "[She] took lots of kids who come from homeless shelters, free lunch programs, and other places and she got them interested in studying a certain kind of bacteria, says John Ewing, MFA president. "Then she somehow got the money for microscopes and hooked these kids up with university researchers. She ended up getting these kids doing what, basically, is research," he says. "And you find that kind of story being replicated dozens and dozens of times in both math and science."
