Expanding Access for STEM Teacher Training and Curricula Program
June 20, 2017

To assist science educators and provide a positive impact on student achievement in the science classroom and laboratory, Flinn Scientific, a leading source of teaching and learning resources, and the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy® (IMSA), the world’s leading teaching and learning laboratory providing professional development programs for educators, have announced a new partnership to expand access to the award-winning IMSA Fusion program for teachers nationwide.

IMSA Fusion is a research-based turnkey science, technology, engineering and mathematics program for fourth through eighth graders that includes curriculum, lab kits for up to 30 students, and ongoing teacher professional development for hands-on, minds-on learning. This highly-acclaimed and affordable program increases student interest and stimulates excellence in school’s mathematics and science initiatives including the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core math standards.

“Flinn Scientific and IMSA share the same passion for science education and recognize the value and lasting impact that a strong STEM program has among students, teachers and schools alike,” said Mike Lavelle, Chief Executive Officer for Flinn Scientific. “Our alliance with IMSA gives us the opportunity to reach a broader range of schools and teachers offering them access to a teacher professional development and student STEM enrichment program that has been nationally recognized, is research driven, and is scalable to meet their instructional needs.”

“IMSA Fusion curricula is developed and written by IMSA’s team of experienced educators who are the reason for the success of this program,” said Dr. Norman Robinson III, Executive Director for Professional Field Services for IMSA. “We are pleased to collaborate with Flinn Scientific because it offers a platform to expand IMSA’s reach as a global leader in STEM education and assists in our efforts to provide transformational STEM curricula to not only educators in Illinois but also nationwide.”
