MySci equips elementary school teachers with instructional materials and professional development opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in order to help instill a love of science in students.
MySci is a cornerstone program for the Washington University Institute for School Partnership and is supported by the Monsanto Fund.
The MySci program supports teachers with innovative lesson plans that promote hands-on student learning and cutting-edge methods for the teaching of science.
MySci teachers are leading in the St. Louis and educational communities. Meet the MySci Ambassadors and the array of exceptional educators showing their leadership through development of new MySci units.
MySci’s mission is to empower teachers to cultivate curiosity-driven education. Throughout the history of the program, MySci has engaged K-8 students in STEM and equipped teachers with interactive, experiential learning modules and ongoing support.
The MySci Resource Center provides teaching space for Institute for School Partnership workshops and access to high quality STEM materials and kits for local teachers, schools and districts.
