Education Science and Technology Partnerships
Science in Motion: Advancing Science
The Pennsylvania Basic Ed/Higher Ed Science and Technology
Partnerships began at Juniata College fifteen years ago when a
group of secondary science teachers met with Juniata faculty to
form a partnership. As the relationship grew, Juniata faculty
became aware of the school teachers' many needs. Many of these
needs were not being met, and this severely limited the
teachers' ability to present the kind of science program they
wanted for their students.
Juniata faculty members ultimately realized that higher
education institutions and their faculty members were uniquely
positioned to provide what was needed. As the teachers and
faculty members worked to address these needs, the shape of the
current partnerships emerged.
