Classrooms partnering with scientists

The Scientist in the Classroom program is a platform for teachers and scientists to collaborate as colleagues, peers and partners in the scientific enterprise to further science education. While the scientist can act as a resource for the teacher and students, the teacher and students can, in turn, help the scientist better understand how to convey their work to a larger, more diverse, and often skeptical audience.  By connecting early career scientists with educators, NCSE hopes to both enrich middle and high school students’ climate change and evolution education and to give scientists a better understanding of the challenges faced when teaching these often socially contentious and misunderstood topics.
