About BaySci: BaySci is aimed at improving the likelihood that every student in our partner districts will encounter high quality science experiences with strategic support for district science goals from regional Science-rich Education Institutions (SREIs). Over the last 9 years, the BaySci network has grown to over a dozen school district teams and equal amount of Bay Area SREIs, demonstrating the value and need for such an implementation network among districts and Science-rich Education Institutions.
