Skip, a developmental biologist (Ph.D., UCLA, 1974) and Biology Professor, and Caroline, a molecular physiologist (Ph.D., UNC, 1994) and Pediatrics Assistant Professor, each began exploring how they could help resolve the science education and training challenges they increasingly witnessed in classrooms and labs. In 1989, Skip began his involvement with a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to increase equity of access to quality science education for all learners -- with the intent this commitment would be a sidebar to his research program. Early accomplishments led to more ideas and funding and great personal satisfaction. In 1998, after accomplishing his research goals, Skip focused his career on science education and training. Carolineís decision to redirect her career was rooted in her experiences teaching courses and mentoring students in the UNC Medical School. In 2001, she accepted a position to help advance Skipís programs in new directions and to create new areas of expertise in science-learning.
