BioEYES: See-Thru Science!, October 2018
Sheilah Kast & Melissa Gerr, WYPR "On the Record"

"What do you have in common with a fish? Dr. Steven Farber, from the Carnegie Institution for Science, has a good idea: turns out, it goes clear down to the genes. He tells us about his research on heart disease using--of all things--the tiny zebrafish. He’s also created a short beginners’ genetics curriculum based on fish development -- called BioEYES. We also visit Mt. Washington School and meet BioEYES outreach educator Terrone Jasper, and science teacher Leaha Charles Pierre, whose students are experiencing BioEYES for the first time."

"Williams' BioEYES Program Expanding to Six More Schools" January 2019
Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires

"For 10 years, North County elementary students have been learning about how zebrafish populations multiply and grow through the BioEYES science program. This year, the program itself is multiplying with plans to go into more than twice as many schools throughout the region. BioEYES. . . has been used for a decade by Williams College professor Martha Marvin and Williams students to teach about genetics and basic biology in third- and fourth-grade classrooms."

"Kicking It Up a Notch: Becoming a Culturally Relevant Science Educator," January 2017
Valerie Butler, The Node

"I want to talk about how you can take your science teaching to the next level, where young people, and especially underrepresented young people (people of color, LGBT, immigrants, girls, etc.), find what you’re teaching engaging, relevant to their lives, and which research shows that if done thoughtfully, enables them to achieve a higher level of learning. I’m not suggesting you change your science content. Instead, I’d like to illustrate the importance of modifying your teaching to be culturally relevant."
