Welcome to SciTrek

SciTrek is dedicated to allowing 2nd - 12th grade students to experience the scientific process first hand. SciTrek seeks to partner with local schools to present inquiry based modules that not only emphasize the process of science but also a specific grade level Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Performance Expectation (PE).

Each module allows students to design and carry out an experiment. Providing students with the opportunity to not only learn scientific facts but also experience scientific practices allows students to understand how scientists use evidence based explanations to explain the world around them.

In addition to providing programming for students, SciTrek strives to demonstrate the importance of three-dimensional based teaching to teachers, practicing teachers, and teachers in training.

Testimonials

I taught seventh grade science last year and students who had participated in SciTrek in elementary school stood out to me. They were more familiar with the scientific practices and more confident sharing their ideas in class. In the latest module, I saw my fifth graders develop a better understanding of the way scientists plan and carry out investigations and gain confidence as scientists themselves. I know that experience will benefit them as they move on to sixth and seventh grade science.

I love SciTrek because it gives me an opportunity to give back to the immediate community around UCSB and helps me gain interpersonal skills working with children.
