Gregory D. Phelan, Chemistry Department, and Kerri Freese, SUNY Cortland Noyce Project, organized and led the 4th Annual National Science Foundation (NSF) Noyce NE Conference held March 26-28 in Cambridge, Mass. More than 250 math and science faculty and teachers/pre-service teachers attended the conference with the theme, “Successful Teaching in High-Need Schools.” This initiative was funded by a two-year, $715,398 NSF grant to three universities: SUNY Cortland, the University of Massachusetts Boston and Drexel University. It aims to advocate for strong content knowledge and teaching practices in mathematics and science and to include researchers, science teacher educators, K-12 educators, school administrators and policy makers who can support teachers and work to positively transform practices and policies to better support science and mathematics learning for students in high-need schools.
