What can we learn from top-performing countries about providing students with equitable opportunities to learn science and developing science teachers? What’s happening in U.S. districts and schools to ensure that all students, particularly those who traditionally are underserved, receive the kind of science instruction that will lead to the deeper learning outcomes necessary for college and career preparedness?

The competencies and skills developed through the study of science are becoming invaluable as our economy places increased importance on both creativity and innovation. In the years to come, students will face challenges that will require them to think critically to develop innovative solutions and shape the direction of new technologies. However, not all students are prepared to meet this challenge. Performance gaps on both national and international science assessments persist between students from different socio-economic and racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Please join us to learn more about science teaching and learning and how educators in the District of Columbia Public Schools have changed how they teach science to ensure that all students have access to rigorous, content-rich science classes.
