Frank Tworek

School: King Science and Technology Magnet Center
Subject: Biology and Science

I began teaching in the Omaha Public Schools in 1972 after earning a B.S.(UNO) in Biology Education. I have continued with OPS since then, completing a M.A.(UNO) in Biology in 1977, and a Ph.D. (UNL) in Science Education in 2008. In my personal time I enjoy fishing, especially with family members.

What are your reflections about using media in education?

Media stimulates student interest and creativity.

What is one thing about the Omaha Science Media Project that you'd share with other teachers?

We are always searching for ways to engage students in learning. This project opened my eyes to new opportunities.
