Linking Science Educators (LSEP) program
The Linking Science Educators (LSEP) program intends to support representatives from countries that are either economically disadvantaged (e.g., UNDP Human Development Index 0.80 or below), or educational disadvantaged countries (e.g., low financial support towards science education with respect to their gross national product for education), but not limited to, who will implement new ideas on science educational reform in their countries. We would support the economy round-trip airfare for resource persons (who must be NARST members) while the host country would provide the cost for the resource person’s stay and for expenses for the proposed activity (Conference/workshop/seminar, or other activity). Countries that are involved in science education reform are encouraged to submit a proposal for the LSEP program via the chairpersons of their science education association or other recognized bodies in the country to the NARST International Coordinator/International Committee Chair.
Deadline for submission is January 25, 2015.
