Why Everyday Science & Science Support?
We embrace Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that connect Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering Design. We envision the use of collaboration, inquiry, problem-solving, and flexibility for our community. Science is a part of everyone’s educational and professional lives, every day.
Everyday Science and Science Support has chosen the workshop, community event, quarterly newsletter, and summer program approaches in order to bring science to the community in a manner that supports our community’s needs. These needs include flexibility; we offer after school and weekend hours of service. We provide free and low-cost materials, strategies and resources for engaging our community in science.
Everyday Science and Science Support was founded by Dr. Diane Rivers on the principles of inquiry and passion.
