From Midland Daily News:

A team of university and public school educators in Michigan have received a $5 million, three-year grant to develop a model for reforming middle-school STEM education that will include a new curriculum supported by updated teacher education and teacher professional development strategies. The Michigan Science Teaching and Assessment Reform (Mi-STAR) focuses on integrating the sciences, using a problem-based approach, cutting across the traditional disciplines of biology, physics, chemistry and earth science to emphasize core ideas and show how science can be used to address society’s needs.
