About the Partner
The mission of the Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science and Engineering Education is “to transform education in mathematics, science and engineering in elementary and secondary school, and in informal settings through high quality research, carefully examined practice, and interdisciplinary collaboration.” It is also a partner with 100Kin10. GLOBE supports the mission of the Leitzel Center and the broader goal of the 100Kin10 to enrich classrooms with 100,000 STEM teachers by 2021.
Our partnership goals are to (1) build a training team of GLOBE teachers and university scientists and graduate students; (2) continue to support the training of teachers in our Math Science Partnership (MSP) grant in partnership with the state coordinators from Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, Project WET, the USDA Forest Service, Cooperative Extension and Project HOME; and, (3) offer a series of GLOBE workshops throughout the school year.
We work with schools and teachers primarily in the state of New Hampshire but open our trainings and support to teachers and schools in Vermont and Maine, if no other partnership is available locally. The Leitzel Center works with students and teachers in K–12 and also has an interest in expanding our work through our Education department’s pre-service program.
