Girl learning science
Science is fun
Everybody can learn and enjoy science!

Focusing on public elementary, middle and high schools in New Mexico that primarily serve minorities and students underrepresented in the science fields, the main activities of Scientifically Connected Communities (SC2) are to:

  • Provide professional development for science teachers through Summer Academies.
  • Provide lab materials and support for inquiry-based activities throughout the school year.
  • Offer new opportunities for graduate studies through a Master of Arts in Teaching with science emphasis online program beginning in Fall, 2006. More information in
