The National Science Teachers Association is sponsoring a networking initiative called “Building a Presence” (BaP). By partnering with NYSED, the electronic network aims to create a state and national network for K-16 teachers of science in order to:

  1. Share resources about effective science teaching and learning
  2. Lessen science teacher isolation
  3. Help science teachers implement state and national science education standards in their schools
  4. Stimulate professional development opportunities for science teachers
  5. Provide teachers with resources to help all students learn science

New York State is seeking a point of contact in each school to receive email announcements and to share them with colleagues. If you are a Science teacher interested in joining this effort, or know someone else who is, please contact Nancy Ridenour for further details.
