Description:
The Los Alamos National Laboratory of the United States Department of Energy and the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), an organization of the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academies, cordially invite you to attend the 2007 National Symposium for Scientists and Engineers.

The NSRC has found that the most effective science programs operate with support from the community, and especially from leaders in science and engineering. The 2007 National Symposium for Scientists and Engineers will explore ways in which you can channel your leadership skills in a new direction by working to improve K-16 science education.

Symposium goals:

  • Review the state of science education and become familiar with available resources documenting the challenges of effective programs.

  • Develop a shared vision for effective K-16 science learning and teaching through hands-on, inquiry-based science experiences and visits to virtual classrooms.

  • Learn about research and best practices that support that vision.

  • Review and discuss the characteristics of effective programs at the district and state levels.
    Discuss the varying roles of scientists and engineers in advancing K-16 science education reform.
