For over 30 years, we have provided programs and services that enable teachers to engage, from both the educator and “student” perspectives, with a variety of science content through inquiry-based activities. We designed our programs to help bring about a positive change in the way science education is taught in our elementary, middle and high school classrooms by working with educators to ensure they understand and are comfortable using hands-on, minds-on, inquiry-based pedagogy. By connecting teachers to the expertise of scientists and seasoned educational professionals from leading science organizations as well as colleges and universities throughout the state, both parties gain insights on the ever-changing landscape of science education.
I am proud of all of our accomplishments. Thank you for being a part of this collaborative education movement and for your continued support as we adapt to the ever-changing landscape of science education in Massachusetts and the United States of America.
