"Increasing students’ interest in science related college majors and careers must begin in high school or even earlier. One approach is to use Open Educational Resources (OERs). As the movement toward releasing resources into the public domain continues to grow, each year brings a wealth of new opportunities to engage students in science through various forms of digital content. OERs:
- Address multiple learning styles
- Can be used to introduce or reinforce concepts
- Help make content meaningful, and connect students to the greater scientific community.
