Michigan State University is leading an effort to improve science teaching with help from $6.9 million from the National Science Foundation.

The East Lansing school said Professor Charles W. "Andy" Anderson created a model for teaching middle school and high school students about processes that transform carbon in the environment such as photosynthesis and combustion of fossil fuels. The six-unit model is called "Carbon: Transformations in Matter and Energy," or Carbon TIME.

Now, the program will be available free to teachers online and Anderson will lead educators in developing ways to best teach the material. Partners include Seattle Public Schools, the Kellogg Biological Station K-12 Partnership in Southwest Michigan and the Michigan Education Association union.

Michigan State University said more than 125 teachers have field-tested the program.
