Students who graduate from UK College of Education teacher preparation programs spend many hours in schools. Those in the Elementary Education Student Association spent one recent Friday evening at Coventry Oak Elementary, helping
parents and families learn more about the importance of science education through hands-on science activities. It was yet another example of the ways students make an impact before they cross the stage in a cap and gown.
