The Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program funds innovative pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (P-12) science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and Informal Science Education (ISE) educational projects. Project 2061 is AAAS’s ongoing effort to improve science literacy in America through research and development focused on K-12 curriculum, assessment, and instruction. Project 2061 staff use their expertise as teachers, researchers, and scientists to help make literacy in science, mathematics and technology a reality for all students.

These characters and their personalities alone make the world of the ISEF cable-worthy entertainment. Add in the students’ scientific accomplishments and public-speaking savvy, and science fairs’ second-tier status becomes even more perplexing. Australian Antarctic Division – offers a range of information and educational resources about the Antarctic for teachers and the general public.

Museums and science centers also support the educational role of parents and teachers. The 2015 data from PISA indicate that the United States performs better internationally in science literacy than it does in mathematics literacy.
Asia-Pacific Science Education is sponsored by The Korean Association For Science Education (KASE)Â KASE was founded in 1976 and currently has more than 3,500 members. KASE aims to contribute to the advancement of science education through research and development. To support these goals, KASE sponsors two science education conferences a year and two different journals to help disseminate research findings to researchers, teacher educators, and teachers – both domestically and internationally.
Educational Design & Effectiveness is about learning and instruction in formal and informal settings, and effectiveness in schools. The National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academy of Sciences managed the first of two steps in the creation of the Next Generation Science Standards by developing the A Framework for K-12 Science Education , which was released July 2011.
