Program Overview

The Mississippi Bend Science Team is dedicated to offering customized professional services that meet the needs of individual districts, buildings and classrooms.  Our goal is to partner with you to ensure a rigorous universal core that is designed to bring out the scientific potential in every student.  

Why is science important?  Science, engineering, and technology permeate nearly every facet of modern life, and they also hold the key to meeting many of humanity’s most pressing current and future challenges (A Framework for K-12 Science Education).  Learning to think scientifically allows us to solve everyday problems more effectively and gives us the critical thinking skills to make quality decisions.
