The design of our summer institute changes from year to year as we work to meet the current need of science and elementary teachers, from kindergarten through high school. From year to year we continue to focus on certain core elements:

  • deepening knowledge of Next Generation Science Standards

  • the Phenomena-Question-Model Framework

  • how to promote sense-making

  • equity in the science classroom

  • hands-on, minds-on, science workshops
