Project ARISE: Advancing Rhode Island Science Education
Project ARISE: Advancing RI Science Education: The goal of ARISE is to provide teachers with resources to implement an inquiry-based curriculum in their classroom and to improve the understanding of the relevance of science to everyday life. We also support teachers as they integrate high–level concepts in molecular and genomic biology, neuroscience and physiology into their curriculum. STEM teachers from elementary through high school participate in the ARISE Professional Learning Community and high school teachers participate in a mobile lab program. The program was developed with NIH funding and currently is funded by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education.
