British Council grant for international collaboration

Egenis researchers have been awarded £3,300 by the British Council. The grant will support a multidisciplinary collaboration with researchers from the prestigious Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. Funded by the Council’s British German Academic Research Collaboration programme, the project will foster co-operation between two groups of young researchers at the Max Planck Institute and at Egenis. The groups will explore different dimensions of the scientific, medical, and cultural practices connected to reproduction throughout the 20th century. The grant funds travel to two workshops and mutual exchange visits. The collaboration brings together historical expertise, sociological analysis and philosophical reflection on science, society, arts and ethics.

Recently Governor Donald Carcieri ’65 and the state’s education commissioner released the results of Rhode Island’s first assessment in science learning at grades 4, 8 and 11. The bad news? Only 24 percent of the students scored at the proficient level or better. The results were especially poor for secondary-school students.
