Science in Motion
Attention High School Educators
Schedule Science in Motion resources for your class. We can teach the lab, assist you in teaching the lab, or drop off equipment for your use. Schedule a visit or equipment loan for experiments in physics, biology and chemistry. More »
Update for 2014-15 school year:
Our program will be back in action in January 2015, and we are looking forward to bringing the latest in science technology to our secondary school students and teachers.
While the Science in Motion program is again only receiving partial funding from the state, we will provide full service and support for our secondary school education partners from January to June 2015. Please follow the link above or to the left for additional information about Science in Motion or to complete a reservation form.
Our program, part of the Pennsylvania Basic Ed/Higher Ed Science and Technology Partnership, focuses on encouraging and improving science education and instruction in the secondary schools throughout our region. Our mobile educators go to high school classrooms to assist teachers with their laboratory experiments to further develop the science education in area schools.

The mission of the Pennsylvania Basic Ed/Higher Ed Science and Technology Partnership at Susquehanna University is to encourage and improve science instruction and education in the secondary schools in our region. To accomplish this mission, we provide free to local high school science teachers a van equipped with the latest technology and a trained certified secondary science teacher to assist in teaching the labs. We also provide professional development opportunities for teachers through summer workshops, as well as daylong seminars and dinner meeting activities during the academic year. In addition, these activities facilitate teacher networking and the development of new curricula across the region. The partnership effectively addresses the three greatest challenges to excellent science education: access to technologically advanced resources, good professional development for teachers and the development and facilitation of good science curricula.
