ISEP Program

  • Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Partnership A coalition of partners in Western New York State has received a five- year, $9.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to expand the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Partnership (ISEP).

    Supported with resources totaling more than $10 million, this promising program aims to transform how science is taught in the Buffalo Public Schools. The focus of the ISEP is the critical middle school experiences of students in science and engineering, as they transition
    to high school.

    The project uses an innovative approach to teacher professional development among high-needs urban schools (including “feeder” middle schools and their corresponding high schools).
