Academics at Chico State University are seeking teams of elementary school teachers with high ESTEEM to participate in a grant project recently secured by the University.

Project Experience Science, Technology, Engineering, Electronics and Math (ESTEEM) will fund a two-year program to help teachers at the elementary school level develop better techniques for instructing in the fields of math, science and technology.

The grant will also strengthen partnerships among the schools, the university and local resources in those fields.

Educators will focus on how to integrate science-standards with students still learning the English language. They will also look further in to better incorporating Common Core content into science and technology.

Chico State School of Education professors Michael Kotar and Ben Seipel will work with the Red Bluff Union Elementary School and Paradise Unified school districts in implementing the project.

Teams from all elementary schools in northeastern California – public, charter and private – are eligible to apply for grants beginning in 2016, through 2018.
