The Caliper: November 2022 Edition

K–12, College
In biology courses, students tend to learn about big-picture concepts that can be difficult to comprehend, such as cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and cellular metabolism. With the Go Direct CO2 Gas Sensor and Go Direct O2 Gas Sensor, students can go from reading about these concepts in a textbook to seeing them in action.
For decades, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) has partnered with Indigenous communities and organizations across the Pacific Northwest to provide engaging science education experiences. In this story, we explore some of OMSI’s important lessons learned from these collaborations, as well as examples of culturally responsive STEM programming the museum has co-developed with Indigenous communities and organizations.
