The Wade Institute for Science Education (MA) provides programs to help bring about a positive change in the way science education is taught in elementary and secondary school classrooms.  Wade Institute programs tap the expertise of educators and scientists from research, cultural and educational organizations and institutions to model inquiry-based science, engineering and technology curriculums. By participating in Wade Institute programs teachers learn how to develop and implement hands-on, minds-on inquiry-based curriculum.  For additional information on Wade Institute professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers, visit:
