Science in Society has embarked on a new adventure: offering in-school programming! We’re partnered with Mather High School in West Rogers Park, Chicago, to support incoming freshman with science and learning skills during the transition to high school. The first cohort of students has named themselves Science Explorers.
Science Club Summer Camp is recruiting CPS teachers! This new, practical approach to teacher professional development helps third-grade teachers incorporate scientific thinking and creative investigations across the curriculum.
Earlier in 2015, Science in Society was officially promoted to a University Research Center under Northwestern’s Office for Research. This tremendous recognition included increased funding and strategic support directly from the Vice President for Research.
“Designating Science in Society a Northwestern research center reflects the excellent, nationally-recognized work being done, and emphasizes Northwestern’s continued investment in community engagement” said Jay Walsh, Vice President for Research.
