Science Master Trainers

Science Master Trainers are an important element in the sustainability of the Science Education Cooperative.  Master Trainers work with ESD 105 Staff to prepare K-5 teachers for the first use of their instructional materials.  Master Trainers are also classroom teachers, leaders and advocates for science education, and "agents of change" for our region.

This page is designed to support the work of Science Cooperative Science Master Trainers.

Smithsonian Science Education Center

The Smithsonian Science Education Center's mission is to transform and improve the learning and teaching of science for K-12 students. To contribute to that goal, the SSEC has developed and published a comprehensive K-8, research-based science curriculum program: Science and Technology ConceptsTM (STC Elementary and Secondary).  The SSEC is developing new units that are aligned to the NGSS.
