Science Curriculum Enhancement
This project focused on how SEC - as a collective - could augment science education, make science real, and inspire students to pursue careers in the sciences. Working with Sarasota County School Board staff, SEC developed a two-year pilot project to localize a 9th grade physical science textbook by showing students through hands-on experiences how abstract science concept apply to their community and by providing opportunities for students to interact with scientists, while aligning with State Science Standards. This project laid the groundwork for the future development of EdExploreSRQ. Read the full Report and the independent Review on the project. Funded in part by Sarasota County School District.
