Welcome to the California Science Project at Irvine! Our goal is to deepen teachers' content knowledge and enhance their understanding of the tools and pedagogy in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This includes being able to integrate language development strategies for all learners. To achieve this goal, we provide:
  • Professional Development led by classroom teachers, science specialists, language acquisition specialists, and UCI faculty
  • A focus on English Learner and language development strategies - linking science to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and NGSS
  • Customized professional development programs for teachers of preK-grade12 students
  • The inclusion of technology
  • Parent workshops focusing on science support at home and school (in English and Spanish)
  • Collaboration with other California Subject Matter Projects (ex: Irvine Math Project)
