Active Fundraisers and Projects
Science Classroom Modernization for Ukraine
This project works with innovative university faculty in Lviv, Ukraine, to modernize their science classrooms using digital technology. We have carried out training programs to teach faculty how to use digital classroom tools, develop active-learning curricula, and evaluate the effectiveness of their activities.

Even though we are well into the 21st century, our digital science education resources resemble 19th century teaching approaches (lectures, quizzes, readings, discussions) deployed with 20th century tools. We can do so much more with modeling, simulators, and virtual field sites. But just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. Without good observations of the teaching environment and curricular design based on these observations, teams can end up designing expensive materials that aren’t useful in many contexts. What we need is smart digital science teaching.
Science Voices works with teams around the world to develop culturally attuned science learning resources using the principles of good storytelling and game design. We want your voice to come through in your science teaching using the best pedagogy and technology available.
