General Information – Mission Statement

The Institute for Research in Science Teaching is dedicated to the creation and sharing of novel instructional techniques and interdisciplinary resources for pre-college teachers. Through its fellowships, workshops, seminars, and a variety of public-outreach activities, IRST provides leadership in the training and retraining of science teachers to use innovative methods to stimulate young minds.
To this end, our goals are five fold:
• to improve the teaching of science in elementary and secondary schools,
• to encourage young people to pursue science as a career,
• to explore innovative methods to communicate new and better ways of teaching science,
• to test and disseminate novel educational products and activities,
• to share the excitement and wonders of science with the public.
The Institute for Research in Science Teaching is headquartered at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Here, scientists and engineers are joined by a group of dedicated professional educators implement a variety of programs and activities of value to pre-college teachers of science
