The primary aim of the program is to provide New York City public high school science teachers with sustained hands-on experience in scientific research so they can better understand the practice of science and better transmit to their students and fellow teachers a feeling for its practice.
SCSP provides content to support kit-based hands-on science education for elementary and middle school students, wherein conventional science textbooks are replaced with laboratory "kits" which are often short on documents which explain the principles behind, or context for, the measurements the students are making.
