Scientist in the Classroom Partnerships

The Scientist in the Classroom Partnership (SCP) Program establishes partnerships between science teaching fellows (STFs) and Nashville middle school science teachers. The STFs are graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) who collaborate with educators in middle school science classrooms one day a week throughout the school year. STFs focus on working with teacher partners to develop and implement hands-on, inquiry-based activities, providing classroom demonstrations, assisting with tutoring students and directing student research projects.
