Science Staff Trainer (SST) will provide instructional support and coaching to all science teachers to ensure that each student is able to reach his or her academic potential. The SST's primary role is to work with science teachers to support best practices in using data, to provide analysis of school-wide trends in instruction, and to make recommendations about potential next steps to address areas of need. As an advisor to science teachers, the SST is responsible for four main areas:



  1. Observing instructional delivery and providing feedback to enhance and support the development of each science teacher's content area,
  2. Supporting science teachers in the design of units and lessons for the development of their year-long curricula,
  3. Analyzing data in order to modify curriculum and forms of assessment to meet students' needs, and
  4. Working with the academic staff, Chair, and principal in the school to support sharing of best practices. 
Each Space Systems STEM kit contains:
1) ​a complete teacher resource manual,
which includes:
​ - important science background information,
- teaching instructions, pre-assessments,
 - post-assessments, and 
- student worksheets when
appropriate.
2) a complete student guide, which includes:
- focus questions,
- detailed instructions when appropriate and
- all copy-ready documents needed. 
If your school is using a one-to-one program with iPads or other devices, all the student modules are provided in writable PDF format. All of the modules are fully aligned with the NGSS and Common Core Standards and are updated yearly with new student data and revised investigations.
