Science & Engineering Education Development
Supporting & enhancing elementary & middle school education
Just a few companies we’re proudly partnered with
What is SEED?
SEED is a regional nonprofit organization run by PhD scientists with a passion for empowering teachers with the confidence to instill a love of science in their students.
In short, we help teachers become even better than they already are at helping their students with science through lessons we’ve prepared!
What do we do to help teachers & students?
Real scientists doing hands-on STEM learning with young people
We demonstrate and model strong science lessons in front of students so teachers can actually see how a lesson will work with a classroom of kids.
We leave teachers with lesson plans and ideas about how to adapt and expand every lesson
"Sandy and Liz are very passionate and enthusiastic about science and elementary science education. Watching real scientists follow the scientific inquiry process was a wonderful learning experience for both our students and teachers. Sandy and Liz were very accommodating to provide professional development that best met the schedule and needs of our teachers. In addition they provided detailed lesson plans with background information and follow-up activities."

“This was an incredible day. To watch real scientists model lessons the NGSS way validates the change I have been trying to make with my own teaching.”
- Teacher, Kennedy School, Brockton
“We are SO lucky to have been able to have the SEED program incorporated into our middle school science program. Each time Liz and Sandra come to our class, they bring multiple hands on activities, have bright, easy to understand powerpoints that connect to the curriculum we are learning, and the students are so excited to apply what they have been learning in science class to different activities. The program has students building, analyzing, testing, and collaborating with one another. The materials are organized, and the lessons have been so easy to re-teach to other groups after the initial lesson. The 7th graders get so excited for Thursdays with Sandra and Liz, and I hope we are able to have this opportunity for our next cohort of students.”

To provide teacher education focused on innovative, systemic changes that enhance elementary science education.
Creating teachers who encourage a love of science in their students and developing the next generation of curious scientists.
SEED reached over 12,00 students and teachers during the 2018-2019 school year.
