SITE K-5 Summer Science Institute is a nine-day institute (five days in the summer and four days during the school year) that focuses on the major themes that cut across the NC Science Standard Course of Study for Grades K-5. The institute is designed to deepen participants’ science content knowledge, and to strengthen their ability to teach science through inquiry. An additional emphasis is placed on the integration of literacy, mathematics, and technology into the science curriculum, and on the use of authentic assessments.
