Building a Math-Science Learning Community

Goal: Establish a "learning community" to support teachers and students in science education and students in personal discovery.


  1. Hands-On Science: Work with teachers to identify and implement demonstrations and hands-on activities to deepen understanding of curricular topics that their children have not seemed to grasp, as measured by achievement testing.
  2. Academic Mentoring: Support high school students in continuing, one-on-one relationships through their technical course work, ideally in the classroom with the teacher present after school.
  3. Students as Teachers: Assist students in becoming teaching assistants ("wizards"), providing classroom demonstrations or assisting teachers with curriculum-related hands-on activities within classrooms.
  4. Personal Discovery: Guide children in technology-assisted self-analysis and career exploration, through career clubs, workshops, or other formats. Work with teachers and parents to help them use career resources, accessing information, making arrangements for field trips and individual job shadowing experiences.
  5. Students as Scientists: Recruit and match interested children with mentors to help them plan, conduct, and share scientific research and experiments. Explore a framework for granting "community resource" credit for such work. Plan Science Forums at which student investigators can share their research and results.

Sites: Schools, church-based community centers, recreation centers, teen clubs, other community centers
