We’ll bring our 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.
Developers of SEPUP’s Science and Global Issues high school biology program published an article in the journal Sustainability detailing how their recently revised curriculum is centered around sustainability-related socioscientific issues. In this article, the authors present the framework they developed and used for presenting sustainability to students, as well as the specific contexts that allowed students to develop a deeper understanding of scientific concepts while addressing current and important socioscientific issues.
