The earth

Project START

Funded by: WestEd in San Francisco

Participating Instituions:

A three-year internship program for colleges and universities interested in starting their own Science Institutes for teachers following the UCI Model. The project is sponsored WestEd in San Francisco. Training is provided for establishing your own teacher professional development programs in science content and pedagogy. There is an emphasis on establishing a self-sustaining Institute which requires a functioning Advisory Board or the equivalent. Some seed monies are provided each year to help the development and to use for leveraging other funding.
