CityScience actively recruits at all local teachers colleges and provides great opportunities for graduate students interested in utilizing informal resources to teach science. In the past, capstone projects have improved program evaluation and new curriculum has been written while students gain valuable experience working with a committed staff in the nonprofit sector.

We envision a world where the teachers least likely to have the experience or certificate to teach science are equipped with resources, training and support necessary to deliver inspiring, hands-on curricula that promotes critical thinking skills and sparks an interest in science for our youngest learners.
