If you haven’t already heard about zebrafish and you teach science or biology, you may want to take a moment to see how this little fish can liven up the curriculum.
Having experienced working with this fish during my research years I am now hoping to bring it to the high school classroom with me. My starting point was to see how others are using it, and what supports already exist. There is a growing community in the U.S. (Fields et al., 2009; Hutson and Lang, 2009; Zebrafish abstracts 2012) that reports using these fish as part of the curriculum a great success as well as programs the likes of BioEYES or InSciEd Out that are partnership programs resulting in students having access to zebrafish embryos and research. Below are a couple of videos that outline some of this work.
