On Thursday, February 7th RITES held its third Science Education Roundtable event at the University of Rhode Island and welcomed partners from across the state.
The Roundtable has been a catalyst for creating partnerships between many science organizations in the state. In the coming months RITES will continue to support the initiatives and partnerships that are forming. The Science Education Roundtable is now poised to continue meeting as a statewide coalition and we invite you to join us as we continue in this effort.

Writing in Science Professional Development Opportunity hosted by RITES in partnership with GEMS-Net
On October 12th, Betsy Rupp Fulwiler, nationally recognized author or Writing in Science and Writing in Science in Action lead participants in a full day event that welcomed over a hundred RI science teachers who were able to engage in small group discussions and reflect on student work as they explored, first hand, the power of scaffolding, modeling and providing prescriptive feedback to students.
We invite you to join us as teachers from across RI connect as part of a professional learning community and collaborate with RITES leaders on the future of the RITES in their schools.
