Transforming the Learning Environment for Science
The Museum of Science and Industry’s Science Leadership Initiative addresses the critical issue of student achievement and exposure to STEM by supporting science education on a whole-school level. This new initiative seeks to:
- Identify the components that lead to an effective science education.
- Support schools on a path toward improvement.
- Promote a culture of shared leadership between teachers, administrators and MSI.
- Recognize those that succeed as models for other schools.
MSI's Science Leadership School Partners Program provides a mechanism for whole-school change in science teaching and learning. This innovative program is grounded in current research in science education and designed to support K-8 schools as they do the work of science education reform.
