From Monday, July 22nd through Friday, 9 August RITES held its fifth Summer Session. This year 139 district science faculty from 18 districts participated in this year's short courses.
To recap: 18 sessions of 13 courses were held at our co-sponsors campuses - the University of RI, Kingston
By the way, this year's participation represented 20% of all science faculty and 50% of all districts in RI. That brings participation in RITES PD program to 500 science faculty and 27 districts, or 70% of faculty and 75% of districts. We are proud of the levels of participation and support the RI science education community has shown RITES over its five year history.
RITES looks forward to working with all of this year's cohort 4 & 5 who participated, as well as supporting all RITES teachers in their implementations and artifacts this year.
