The goal of the UCLA Science Project is to design and implement programs that identify, develop and promote strategies that make good science instruction available and accessible to all students. Believing that good teaching begins with a life long commitment to learning, the UCLA Science Project offers several programs throughout the year designed to foster collaborative communities of researchers and practitioners. Through these collaborations, the UCLA Science Project aims to deepen teacher’s science content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge in order to better meet the needs of their students.
