Science faculty from the School of Arts & Sciences present summer workshops to improve teachers' content knowledge and performance skills in alignment with Connecticut science content standards. During the fall and spring semesters, participating teachers and science faculty will design and conduct research projects together.

Faculty from the Department of Education, School of Professional Studies, will serve as performance coaches by training teachers to recognize and develop good science fair projects and coach teachers to assess student performance in science.
