Teacher-Scientist Alliance Workshop

tsaFrom January 11-15, 11 teams of scientist and science educators, 51 in all, from selected sites around the country participated in the third Elementary Science Education Reform Institute of the APS's Teacher-Scientist Alliance Institute. For five intense days, the participants examined a whole range of issues emphasizing the hands-on approach to teaching and systemic reform. The APS is playing a major role in the emerging national consensus on what constitutes a good science education for children. Funding for this program is provided by the APS-AAPT Campaign for Physics.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
