Hussa and Toyota Receive Grant from the Mississippi IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence

 

Two Millsaps College professors have received a grant to support development of science classes that will investigate the questions: “Will the World Be Ruled by Zombies?” and “The Five Second Rule: Can I Still Eat It?”

“Our universal goal with these classes is to establish a new method of student-driven learning among freshmen, which will hopefully make it more exciting and engaging to learn science as science is done--by applying the scientific method--instead of reading a textbook,” Toyota said.
