    Teaching science out of the classroom: Advocate program helps students enter science fairs

    Teaching out of a textbook can only do so much to ignite a student’s interest in science. Elias Arellano Villanueva, an eighth-grade biology teacher at IDEA Public Schools in Weslaco, Texas, knows that it takes some time outside of the classroom for students to gain a lifelong love for science.

    “I want my students to see what scientists really do, and inspire them to become scientists....
