Welcome to the Earth and Space Science Partnership.

Our project seeks to improve the quality of instruction and student learning in Earth and Space Science (ESS) at the middle school level for Pennsylvania teachers and students. Our approach involves professional development through summer workshops for teachers in our partner districts that tightly integrates formative assessment, curriculum development and pedagogical improvement.

We also encourage you to become involved in the statewide professional network of K-16 Earth and Space Science teachers, the Pennsylvania Earth Science Teachers Association (PAESTA).
