Bring your students to The Lawrence, or bring our inquiry-based science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
The NGSS Connections to Nature of Science emphasize that “science is a human endeavor.” This session will describe how this connection can be leveraged to highlight diversity and foster greater inclusion in the classroom. This session will introduce resources highlighting the contributions of a greater diversity of individuals, teams, and communities than has been typically featured in science and present opportunities for all students to participate in science. Participants will receive a letter to students to introduce this concept. They will then explore a free online resource that spotlights examples of how communities are engaging in science locally, provides links to opportunities for community (or citizen) science, and features a diverse array of people who are scientists and engineers currently working in the field. The idea that real-world science and engineering can be done by people of all ages and backgrounds—including students—will be emphasized.
