We envision a world in which educators are equipped with the resources, support and training to deliver inspiring hands-on experiences that spark an interest in science, connect science to daily life and prepares students for 21st Century opportunities.
CityScience transforms teaching and engages students by using the natural and built environments of cities as laboratories for active learning.
We believe science literacy will play an increasingly vital role in shaping the future of our world, and that all students deserve a high quality science education. We believe that complex STEM subjects are best introduced in familiar contexts - like the communities in which we live. By integrating the local context into our STEM curriculum we strive for building a more culturally responsive approach to teaching and learning in economically disadvantaged communities.
As the number of people living in cities increases, so does the need for sustainable practices. We have an opportunity to inspire a new generation of urban conservationists by helping our youth understand and bond with their local environments.
