Merging University Students into K-12 Science Education Reform

author: Valerie L. Williams
description: The goal of this RAND study was to identify the impacts, challenges, and strategies of programs that link university students with K-12 science classrooms. This report may be of special interest to those who are involved or interested in implementing these kinds of partnerships.

Abstract: "An increasingly prominent strategy for improving K-12 science education involves partnerships between universities and schools. The project this report describes conducted a series of case studies of university-school partnership programs designed to involve undergraduate and graduate science students in K-12 science education activities in a variety of ways. The project identified the elements of successful programs and explored some of the challenges these programs face."
