If students were more knowledgeable or educated about the fields, then interst would rise. - Debbie Hays, 5th grade teacher </li></ul></li></ul></li><li> 8. Research <ul><li>Learning concepts with hands-on activities and real life experiences are most effective </li></ul><ul><li><ul><li> The best method for teaching students science is activity-based learning. - Jeff Rosenblatt, Director of Science City </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li> The idea of touching things and physically having the material in their hands is better than busy paperwork or math problems. -Maggie Bohlin, middle school teacher </li></ul></li></ul></li><li> 9.
