An Eye for Education
“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself.”
–Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
Though written long ago, these words reflect a very modern educational philosophy—that the drive to discover inspires learning. That guiding principle is evident in HHMI’s science education grants to individuals and institutions, which are transforming the way science is taught at every tier of academia—from grade school to graduate school, and beyond.
