Education partnerships and sponsorships
Each year, SRP contributes funds, scholarships, in-kind services and volunteer assistance to educational programs throughout Arizona.
From 4-H programs to university improvements; from basic school supplies to cutting-edge science and technology competitions, SRP invests in education initiatives that brighten the outlook for Arizona students.
Following are some of our recent collaborations with partners in education. For a summary of schools and programs that received corporate contributions from SRP during the last fiscal year, please see the overview of SRP's community involvement.
ASU Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College
SRP seeks to increase the quality of math and science education provided to students in grades K-12 though development of Highly Qualified Teachers and supporting "train the trainer" programs for educators. We know that it's important to prepare teachers to better equip students for higher education by encouraging student success in physical science, engineering or environmental science through enrichment activities and access to technology. That's why SRP is partnering with the ASU Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College to present the Teaching Inquiry-Based Science Educator Institute.
Teaching Inquiry-Based Science - A Summer Institute for Educators and Future Educators is modeled upon research-based best practices to overcome barriers in science education. K-12 teachers and pre-service ASU students engage in a week-long learning experience devoted to improving their content knowledge about environmental education topics as well as their methodology for how to use inquiry methodology in their science classrooms.
