Recently, both the United States and Finland have developed new science standards that stress the value of instructional activities that are interesting, challenging, and relevant to students’ lives and futures. This project is a collaboration between researchers and teachers in the both countries to: 1) measure the academic, social, and emotional learning of students in secondary science classes; 2) investigate the effect of the implementation of a new form of science instruction modeled after the new Next Generation Science Standards; and 3) create an integrated exchange program between the United States and Finland for students, teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and policy leaders to foster the professional development of science teachers and improvement of teacher education programs.
