MSI hosts an annual celebratory event each spring to recognize our current school partners. This event allows our partners to share their accomplishments and act as a model for other schools who are looking to prioritize science education at the whole-school level. Attendees have the opportunity to network with about 250 other professionals including the school partners, MSI staff members and external stakeholders.
The school partner presentations during the event illustrate how collaboration and conversations about science involving administrators, staff and teachers across subjects and grade levels is a critical part of the program’s success. By creating cross-disciplinary teams as a foundation during year one of the program, school partners build upon and strengthen their work in years two and three, to continue prioritizing and revitalizing science education at the whole-school level.
