UCI Science Project is grounded in research-based educational practices and understands the paradigm shifts needed for the Next Generation Science Standards. Our goal is to support educators to be transformative leaders who build capacity in their schools through empowering learning experiences. We are firmly committed to addressing racial, social, and environmental injustices through collaborative efforts that position educators as agents of change for community action.
We can work with your school site to support implementation of adopted materials, review curricula for NGSS alignment, co-construct district pacing plans, offer professional development catered to your site needs, or support your science educators in the classroom through lesson studies and sustained partnerships.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
