The New York Academy of Sciences is an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to advancing science, technology, and society worldwide since 1817. With 25,000 members in 140 countries, the Academy is creating a global community of science for the benefit of humanity. The Academy's Science Education Initiative offers science education professionals unique events and publications on such topics as classroom best practices, innovative education programs, and developments in science education policy. It also connects science teachers with the New York scientific community to promote understanding of current scientific discoveries and trends, while forging links between students, their teachers, and practicing scientists through our Pathways to Science web portal. Pathways is an online extension of the Academy’s K-12 Science Education Initiative, which offers an array of programming to encourage science educators to exchange information, build collaborations, and spur new thinking. Pathways contains blogs, an active discussion board, links to resources, and direct access to Academy content, along with a calendar listing upcoming events for science, math, technology, and engineering teachers in the New York City area and beyond.

Teachers’ TalkingScience is an online collection of free science lesson plans that can help you spark your students’ excitement about science. Every month, two new lessons based on Science Friday’s popular Web videos are created by the education staff at the New York Hall of Science and posted at  www.TeachersTalkingScience.org. Lesson plans feature hands-on activities, and cover a wide range of topics in biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics. The lessons, which are aligned with national teaching and learning standards, are aimed at middle school students. But teachers at all levels K-12 have told us that they find them useful. The Science Friday videos that start each lesson draw students quickly into the topic, and help build students’ interest in science. In each video, students are able to see real scientists at work in the lab or the field, sharing their wonder at what they observe and their passion for their research. The lessons’ engaging hands-on activities are student-friendly, and they require only inexpensive, easy-to-find supplies. The lesson plans also include links to additional online resources and offer suggestions for classroom discussion or extensions of the activity that can be assigned as homework. For Earth Day, check out the popular lesson on “Building a Solar House.”

 


HOW CAN MY SCHOOL PARTICIPATE?

Established in 1970, SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT (SSR – secondary level) and SCIENCE SCREEN REPORT FOR KIDS (SSRFK – elementary level) are provided FREE OF CHARGE to schools and school districts nationwide through corporate sponsorship that we secure.  Fourteen new and exciting titles with accompanying teacher guides are distributed each school year.  We are in our 45th year of production, with over seven thousand school districts using our video based materials to promote science as an exciting and integral part of the way we live, work, and learn.
