Did you know that Flynn and ECHO have been piloting a science professional development outreach program this year? Well, we are and making great progress!
The Leahy Science Center, otherwise known as ECHO, has a newly established goal to provide rich STEM PD to rural communities in Vermont, based on our Next Generation Science standards and practices. Chris Whitaker, STEM coordinator and teacher at ECHO, has been working with our first grade team on their light unit. He uses the model, “I do, We do, You do.” So far, he has brought engaging lessons and materials to Flynn and has helped strengthen our teachers science teaching. We look forward to working with he and his team next year as well!
