About Us

SEPUP (The Science Education for Public Understanding Program) creates innovative science curriculum for use in 6–12 education. One of the most unique aspects of SEPUP materials is its issue-oriented approach: SEPUP curriculum uses personal and societal issues to introduce and explore science concepts.

Located at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California at Berkeley, SEPUP is a not-for-profit project that was established in 1987 originally as CEPUP. Since that time, SEPUP has supported excellence in science education by developing research-based curricular materials and providing teacher professional development.
