Chickscope is a project to study chicken embryo
development using a remotely controlled magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI) instrument. It is being
developed by educators and researchers from
several departments at the University of Illinois
at Urbana-Champaign in collaboration with
Central Illinois teachers.
Illinios Chickscope (ILCS) is a professional
development program for 32 Illinois K-12
teachers during the Spring, Summer, and Fall
semesters of 1998. Selected teachers will actively
collaborate with several preservice teachers, and with
several interdisciplinary faculty and staff
members during the project. Selected teachers
will also collaborate with project staff to assess
the effectiveness of Chickscope for student
learning in their classrooms.
