Science Across the Elementary Grades and Why It’s so Important

MAR 17, 2020 at 03:30PM (Eastern Time)

In this webinar, we will explore the many ways that students benefit from high-quality science learning experiences across the elementary grades. We’ll also look at how missing out on science sets students back, and how to improve classroom experiences in this regard. Drawing on the expertise of teachers and researchers who presented their work in the STEM for All Video Showcase, we will examine strategies for increasing science teaching in elementary school.
