The focus is on preparing those entering or new to the science teaching profession to use their understanding of science and engineering to prepare the next generation of Americans for life in the 2st century. It provides ideas and knowledge about how to help students see science and engineering as ways of thinking about and investigating the world around them, and to recognize the relationship between science and engineering in their everyday lives.
