invite you to join us for the
Elementary Science Summit: Preparing K–5 for a STEM Future
November 30, 2018

I can’t attend, but would like to stay in touch

Join EDC’s Coalition for Elementary Science for the Elementary Science Summit: Preparing K–5 for a STEM Future, to be held November 30 at EDC headquarters in Waltham, MA. The focus of the Summit is on helping elementary school-aged children realize their full potential as science learners and science literate citizens. Educators, business leaders, parents, journalists, policymakers and others interested in this theme are invited to attend.

Beginning with New England, this summit will be the first in a series of regional meetings on elementary science education that EDC plans to convene. Participants will:

  • Learn about high-quality elementary science teaching
  • Meet principals who have elevated science in their schools and sustained their students’ strong learning outcomes
  • Create action plans they can pursue in their own communities to make elementary science a reality

To learn more about this event, contact Abigail Jurist Levy.
