Transforming science education through research-driven innovation

Access Fund

Though BSCS has developed a growing suite of powerful programs, we face a persistent challenge: bringing these science learning opportunities to the teachers and students who need them most. That’s why we created the Access Fund in 2021. It is designed to connect our proven programs with schools and districts that are being left behind. Your contribution to the Access Fund brings the best in science education to teachers and students in need.

Examples of Potential Impact:

  • A $5,000 gift will support 2 teachers with a year of BSCS’s transformational STeLLA professional learning program. STeLLA has been shown to significantly improve teaching practices and student outcomes in science.
  • A $25,000 gift will support a district’s efforts to build internal leadership capacity for science education reform. Our institute prepares leaders to help teachers navigate challenging science standards and implement new classroom materials.
  • A $50,000 gift will support a district or school with a year of collaborative professional learning for a cohort of science teachers. Our program will support teachers’ enactment of new instructional materials designed to change how students learn and use science throughout their lives.
