CityScience connects science education to urban environments with place-based programming for students, teachers, schools, and communities. CityScience programs are designed to improve K-8 STEM education and inspire meaningful exploration of urban environments. To meet the unique STEM needs and budgets of schools and Out of School Time providers we offer four levels of STEM Coaching:
- Partnerships include all of the services described below together with customized curricula and capacity-building solutions for parks, conservancy groups, and community-based organizations.
- Workshops support teacher excellence through onsite professional development, coaching, and a Summer Institute.
- Explorations are taught by CityScience’s expert STEM Coaches on site at K-8 public schools, after-school settings, and summer camps.
- Library provides low or no cost resources to educators seeking STEM activities, supplies and reading materials.
All programs emphasize hands-on exploration of urban environments and seek to integrate academic standards in science with other subjects. CityScience promotes a differentiated instructional approach that is flexible and accommodates a range of learning styles. Through our programs youth learn to think critically and develop the ability to address academic and life challenges with the confidence and tools they need to succeed and make a difference in the world.
