Colby Partnership for Science Education


Colby College's scientists and mathematicians are enthusiastic about forging closer professional interactions with you, your students, and your school. Please allow us to work with you and assist your efforts in any way you deem appropriate. We look forward to working with you again this year!

   Colby faculty and staff in the Division of Natural Sciences and related disciplines have long been involved with science education in various capacities in local public schools. The Partnership for Science Education, Colby's cooperative program in science education with local schools, has expanded significantly during the past six years as a result of generous grants awarded to the College by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Bell Atlantic Foundation, and NSF AIRE (Awards for the Integration of Research and Education at Baccalaureate Institutions).

As we expand these services we will endeavor to continually amend our site to reflect the inclusion of new or expansion of existing services.

Please explore the new Curricular Links feature. The curricular links connect you to detailed lesson plans for classroom activities using ARC equipment. The lesson plans are written by area teachers to be age appropriate and supportive of the Maine Learning Results.
