ReLearning Curve is conducting evaluations of two New York State funded Math and Science Partnership (MSP) programs for the Peekskill City School District. Middle and elementary school teachers will be taking two, specially designed courses emphasizing technology and engineering and will learn to develop projects for their students using technology tools like computer programming, robotics, and 3-D printing. The courses, which include on-site support, will be provided through Pace University.
The MSP program is a competitive grant program that supports partnerships between high-need school districts and the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) departments in institutions of higher education. The program focuses on enhancing the content knowledge and instructional practices of teachers in order to improve students’ academic achievement.
