Breakout Session #2: Deeper Exploration of Statewide Goals: What Can Each Sector of the Education Community Contribute?


These breakout sessions will explore how the various sectors represented at this convocation can contribute to nurturing and growing successful programs in science education for grades K-8. The goal will be for participants in each breakout to begin developing models for sustainability of K-8 science education both regionally and across the state.


The following breakout groups will meet:


  • Business and Industry

  • Foundations

  • Education Administration (local and state levels)

  • Education Researchers

  • Informal Education

  • K-12 and Higher Education Faculty


Participants who are not in one of these groups should join the breakout session of their choice.
