    Primary Audience

    Higher education science/science education instructors

    We also welcome any professional scientists, informal science professionals, tertiary science instructors, and related industry professionals to join us.

    As our K-12 pre-service and in-service teachers are enhancing their practices to meet the intent of the Kentucky Academic Standards in Science, we need to inform ourselves about how to best support those teachers. While all who support K-12 science educators are welcome, our goal for the Summit is to have representation from each higher education institution across Kentucky as we incorporate interactive features for networking and learning from each other. You will have the opportunity to submit a challenge and/or solution for presentation consideration by the Summit Committee as topics for breakout sessions.

    Features

    • Dr. Jason Glass, KDE Commissioner, will join the group and share in the discussion of challenges and solutions
    • Update from KDE science consultant Rae McEntyre including the KAS-Science review
    • Brainstorming sessions for solution strategies
    • Resources for supporting high-quality science classrooms
