Who we are
P.S. Science brings memorable science lessons to children living at or below the poverty line in Title I schools in the local area. In classrooms where science was formerly rarely if ever taught, PS Science partners with the classroom teachers to mentor and deliver impactful science learning.
PS Science enables underserved children and their teachers in Title I schools to:
1See beauty, wonder, and infinite opportunity.
2Do science through active exploration and collaboration.
3Know the joy of discovery and the power of knowledge.
2017-18 School Year Objectives:
- Approximately 1,600 students at eight Title I elementary schools will participate in hands-on science education that would not otherwise be offered.
- Each participating student will have access to 90 minutes weekly of age-appropriate STEM instruction and activities over the course of the entire school year.
- Twenty-eight students will attend the third annual S-Team Rangers Summer Science Institute.
- Every participating classroom teacher (55 at a minimum) will receive 50 hours of training and support from a trained P.S. Science educator.
"Thank you PS Science for helping to bring science to life at William Green Elementary with hands-on materials, engaging lessons, fun investigations, and memorable experiences. Students in grades 1-5 receive an exemplary science program and teachers gain valuable coaching experience. This program transforms our students to become inquisitive and creative 21st century learners. ""PS Science is a hands-on approach to learning this year in room 24. It is teaching through collaboration and giving the future scientists of Room 24 a way to learn that engages all my students. ""I personally never taught Science before the PS Science program came to our school. It has been a great experience for myself and the students. The students get so excited on Science day! When I was in school our science lessons were taught from a book. We read the lesson each week and then answered the questions and I will admit that I hated Science. I know that my students all enjoy learning Science. "
