The goal of the Howard Hughes Science Institute (HHMI) supported science program is to train one staff member to become a science lead within each of the elementary schools in the district. The specific objectives of the first year of HHMI grant project were to a) provide approximately 20 teacher leaders with an increased understanding of targeted Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) practices and the skills needed for them to create a training plan, and b) to deliver this knowledge to 100 elementary classroom teachers during a week-long Science Summer Institute (SSI). This year 1 evaluation describes the implementation and impact on a) teacher leaders as they went through a series of professional development, including creating and implementing the Science Summer Institute (SSI) training for other elementary level teachers, and b) elementary classroom teachers who attended the week-long SSI professional development.
