The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to provide funding to the North Carolina Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education Center (SMT Center) in support of science education reform work in NC. The award is part of a $1.5 million match for NC that will help leverage a $6 million investment in NC schools from the U.S. Department of Education’s Investing in Innovation i3 grant program. The LASER Model will be used by the SMT Center and the National Science Resource Center to provide a systemic approach to science education reform through educational leadership development for school administrators, teachers, and corporate and community leaders, high quality, content specific professional development for 1,000 teachers, and researched-based science education instructional materials to drive experiential, hands-on learning that will benefit 25,000 children in NC.
