Supporting faculty innovation in STEM teaching

Develop hands-on, inquiry-based activities related to your research

Science Center Outreach staff advise faculty interested in developing hands-on activities and inquiry-based activities related to their research. These activities can be used by faculty to engage the broader community with their research.

Support pedagogical innovations in introductory science courses

In partnership with the Sheridan Center, SCO staff facilitate workshops and provide intensive one-on-one consultation to help faculty design innovative pedagogical strategies. We also assist faculty with data gathering, analysis, and assessment; and we can help in the dissemination of best practices to the broader community. 

Foster collaborations with K-12 schools

SCO staff can help faculty develop strong partnerships with K-12 teachers and administrators, and help students and faculty understand Rhode Island state standards and requirements. Science Center Outreach also provides teachers from different school districts in Rhode Island with information regarding opportunities to collaborate with scientists at Brown.
