We are currently recruiting teams of teachers, coaches, IRFs, and administrators from public elementary schools in San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood.

The Bayview Science Institute is launching June 11-15, 2018. BSI a transformative, one-year professional learning opportunity that deepens the science literacy of K-5 teachers and students, in order to empower all students to see themselves as independent thinkers and real world problem-solvers.

How can I teach science that matters to my students and their communities?

How can science inspire students to become more fluent readers, writers, and mathematicians?

How can I juggle the changing curriculum, the crunch for time, AND the needs of my students?

Join the makers of TISS and a community of Bayview-based elementary educators to explore these questions, and more, starting this summer.
