At Science from Scientists (SfS), we believe that anyone who is curious about the way the world works is a scientist. With unique and engaging hands-on lessons informed by Next Generation Science Standards and taught by real, charismatic scientists, we hope to inspire students to see that science is in everything. Our SfS staff scientists work alongside classroom teachers to compliment and enhance their curriculum with hands-on lessons taught in an engaging, discovery-focused manner.
By working with students every two weeks over the course of the year, our scientists are able to serve as mentors, improving student attitudes and aptitudes towards science. By offering our program during the school day, we capture and engage every student in the classroom, especially those that may not otherwise show interest in STEM or be able to participate in STEM programming outside the school day. We measure our success using pre/post test evaluations and by tracking the MCAS scores of students in the program.
