Meeting at Liberty Science Center

Met with Mr. Ed Barry from the Liberty Science Center (LSC) to discuss involvement of the LSC with district science curriculum as well as professional development opportunities. A very productive meeting and I feel a great asset to leverage for the benefit of the district.

Since 1998, Liberty Science Center and the New Jersey Department of Education, has undertaken one of the most unique and extensive science education projects found anywhere in the nation. Through yearly funding from the New Jersey State government, Liberty Science Center provides students, teachers and families from New Jersey's 31 Abbott school districts with a menu of onsite, offsite and online programs that address the science education needs of these traditionally under-served communities.

Liberty Science Center also provides high-quality professional development for science teachers at all grade levels. Offered in the Jennifer A. Chalsty Center for Science Learning and Teaching, our programs focus on both content and methodology, helping teachers find ways to inspire their students through meaningful science learning.
