The Space Coast Science Education Alliance pulls together a wide range of local resources with the goal of improving science education. Volunteer group promotes, supports science education:
An all-volunteer organization, whose members have a passion for science and a commitment to education, hopes to have a positive impact on students and teachers this school year.
The Space Coast Science Education Alliance includes more than a dozen local organizations that come together to donate their time and money to provide science opportunities for students — and recognize good science teachers.
The alliance supports science education in the county through projects including a speaker series and by sponsoring Research Rules! — a free workshop for students in grades 5-8 participating in a science fair project.
The group’s website is here. They’re always on the lookout for folks wanting to help.
Fifteen-year-old Korey Kinder has found a course at Palmetto High School that he loves.
Korey, a sophomore, aspires to be an anesthesiologist. The course that he is obsessed with during this first week of school is Principles of Biomedical Sciences. It’s a class that forms the foundation of the high school’s new $550,000 biomedical sciences program.
“We’re breaking ground,” teacher Hanna Waldhalm said about the new program. “This class is why I came to Palmetto High School. This is going to light fires under students.”
