EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University and researchers in Finland are joining forces to try to make science more exciting in high school.

MSU says there’s a lot to learn from Finland where students are known to crush international tests. The National Science Foundation has approved a $3.6 million grant for the project.

Over five years, science education researchers will work with teachers in the U.S. and Finland to design a curriculum in physics and chemistry. The lessons will allow researchers to study the impact of new teaching strategies.

Professor Barbara Schneider says not everyone will be a scientist but students need scientific knowledge.
