Event Description

The LANL Math and Science Academy hopes to develop a partnership school—essentially an existing district elementary school in either Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe, San Miguel, Sandoval or Taos county that will collaborate with MSA, the community and an institution of higher education with a teacher pre-service program.

One goal of this partnership school is to sustain a community of learners (students, teachers, and parents) who are engaged in their work and who think critically and deeply about the world around them. But the purpose of the partnership stretches beyond the classroom and beyond an academic year.

The selected elementary school will not only be the physical location for these goals to unfold but will also be invited to participate in grant-funded, educational research and to collaborate with MSA and higher education faculty.
