On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
As part of the statewide California Science Project network, BASP provides high-quality professional learning for K-12 educators in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, to support and improve their teaching and their students’ learning science. BASP engages and collaborates with university scientists, teacher-leaders, and master teachers to lead Summer Institutes and monthly workshops that focus on strengthening science conceptual and content understanding, environmental/climate literacy, spatial literacy, systems thinking, project-based learning, teacher leadership, and cross-curricular integration. BASP’s work is grounded in research-based educational practices and supports the paradigm shifts needed for implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards. BASP is firmly committed to addressing racial, social, and environmental injustices through partnering and collaborative efforts with teachers, schools, districts, university, and both local and state science agencies.
