Smithsonian Science Education Center
The Smithsonian Science Education Center’s mission is to transform and improve the learning and teaching of science for preK-8 students. We are dedicated to the establishment of effective science programs for all students. To contribute to that goal, the SSEC builds awareness for P-12 science education reform among state and district leaders, conducts programs that support the professional growth of P-12 teachers and school leaders, and engages in research and curriculum development to help transform the teaching and learning of science in the United States and throughout the world.
