Abstract

The Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), through development of the Inspiring Inquiry: SACNAS Teacher-Scientist Partnerships project, seeks to provide intensive, year-round mentorship and support to elementary, middle and secondary level (K-12) educators who work with underrepresented minority students. Project aims include:

  1. Develop a mentor program that unites behavioral, biomedical and health scientists with SACNAS K-12 teacher workshops participants to form life-long learning partnerships
  2. Collaborate with SACNAS partners to identify exemplary inquiry-based, behavioral, biomedical, health and other science curricula and train K-12 educators in their methodology and classroom implementation
  3. Increase participation of K-12 educators from schools that serve economically-disadvantages students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds by providing full or partial funding to participate in the "Inspiring Inquiry" project
  4. Produce and disseminate materials encouraging underrepresented minority students to pursue careers in behavioral, biomedical, health and other sciences based on activities of participating teachers and scientists
