Register today for Iowa science standards summer institutes
To launch the second year of a four-year Iowa science standards implementation process, the Iowa Department of Education is sponsoring grade-alike science institutes in June.
With national and state science education leaders, participants will engage in three-dimensional science learning experiences and will explore various resources and instructional practices that support the standards.
The institutes will be held June 15-17 at Valley High School in West Des Moines. Each day will be focused on content and issues related to specific grade bands (June 15 elementary focus, June 16 middle school focus, and June 17 high school focus).
Participation in this event assumes knowledge of the structure, foundations, and conceptual shifts of the standards; districts needing this overview of the standards should contact their Area Education Agency science consultants.
There is no registration fee but registration is required for planning purposes. Online registration is now open: Registration June 15 elementary focus, Registration June 16 middle school, Registration June 17 high school
