National Writing Project


Partner for Science Learning Design Institute

March 15–18, 2017

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Partner for Science Learning is an institute funded by the National Science Foundation  and offered to the network through a collaboration of the National Writing Project and the Association of Science-Technology Centers . This institute is designed to support educators thinking about how they might work together at the intersections of science and literacy and formal and informal education.

A local Writing Project site and science museum support a four-educator team to attend the design institute, March 15-18, 2017, in Philadelphia, PA. The team registers and pays the $800/team registration fee (returned upon completion of the institute and follow-up interview with Inverness Research), unlocking an invitation which pays airfare, lodging, and most meals. Teams spend three days learning together about Connected Learning , and several model projects funded by the Intersections Initiative, while also spending time together in directed design thinking to imagine a similar Intersections project in their local contexts.

You will:

  • Learn about pilot projects that might serve as models for work at your own Writing Project site
  • Get to know your partner organization, their mission and goals
  • Explore intersections of shared interest
  • Create a draft design of a possible Intersections project
  • Brainstorm possible local funding sources
