Abstract: Grants are a growing aspect of the funding cycle in higher education and often within the grant structure there is a requirement to partner with K-12 classrooms or school districts in order to meet the funding requirements for the grant. This paper examines two GK-12 projects: Science and Technology Enrichment for Appalachian Middle-Schoolers (STEAM) and the Boat of Knowledge in Science (BooKS) and the lessons learned concerning changing roles when reconnecting the scientist, K-12 science teacher and student in a partnership among higher education, middle school and high school teachers and their students.
