Improving K-12 Science Instruction - Higher Education/K-12 Partnership, Professional Development, Mentoring & Collaborative Strategies


"This partnership among 5 universities, 9 school districts, 5 community colleges, STEM industry, science centers and SECME, a pre-college STEM initiative is led by Tuskegee University and focuses on the Black Belt region of Alabama, among the poorest and most academically challenged in the state. Through the development of innovative content, rich in nanobio science, including 3D simulations, this project seeks, in part, to improve academic performance in middle grades by improving teachers' instructional practices and content knowledge. Partners will share year one informal and formative evaluations of the Summer Institute professional development component of the project and discuss using these to inform program development and modifications to year two and beyond."
