ME 16: Alternative Spring Break - From Classroom to Community: Science Education and Environmental Literacy

This Alternative Spring Break course and trip will examine K-12 science education in California. Though centered in the San Francisco Bay Area, we will be exploring different institutions throughout the state - schools, science museums, non-profit organizations - and their current contributions to the education of California's youth in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields. These institutions will help us explore the interaction between in-school and out-of-school learning, and the benefits of each. We will particularly focus on disparities (socioeconomic, regional, etc.) present in Californian science education, discussing their effects and how they can be remedied. The trip will involve conversations with teachers, students, and other professional educators centered around improvement to the current science education system in California. All told, we hope to explore the best methods for developing lasting interest and aptitude for science in California students to promote a brighter future.
