Makes Community Connections for Science Learning
Quincy, MA & Great Barrington, MA – In the Berkshires of Massachusetts, one parent became concerned about the scarcity of STEM resources for K-12 students and her own child’s ability to make connections between science concepts. She sought resources within the community to supplement her child’s STEM education. That path led her to become an educator herself and to take on the role of Executive Director of the educational nonprofit and Wade Institute for Science Education partner, Flying Cloud Institute (FCI). By developing community and statewide partnerships, FCI’s Executive Director Maria Rundle has provided hands-on, minds-on professional development for teachers in the Berkshires through week-long institutes and in-school, customized learning opportunities.
