Ready, Set Science/Surrounded by Science Value Pack

Designed to help teachers translate research into the classroom, Ready, Set, SCIENCE! is an indispensable and extremely practical resource for teachers in the elementary grades and their support communities. Now a new, complementary resource to Ready, Set SCIENCE! is available. Surrounded by Science is an invaluable tool to help teachers draw upon informal and after-school sectors to enhance and extend student learning beyond the walls of classrooms. Informal education sectors have tremendous potential to extend the teaching and learning that takes place in school settings.

Both Ready Set SCIENCE! and Surrounded by Science are based on solid research about how people learn science, and both provide examples for putting that research into practice. Utilizing these resources from the Academies as the basis for professional development of elementary school science teachers will have a powerful effect in helping teachers, students, parents, and school administrators understand and appreciate that science learning can be everywhere. Administrators, curriculum coordinators, teacher educators, parents and teachers will find both Ready, Set, SCIENCE! and Surrounded by Science invaluable to their work.
