The Science Education group at Jefferson Lab has developed and implemented model programs that improve the quality of science education, reaching 12,000 students and 800 teachers per year. The group delivers the innovative Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science (BEAMS) program which is a model program reaching middle school students from under-performing schools and helps students obtain measurable improvements in math and science test scores. BEAMS has been recognized by the National Academy of Science RISE (Resources for Involving Scientists in Education) project as one of only thirteen K-12 science education programs where scientists, engineers and other community members have especially effective roles. The Lab group has worked to extend its reach to teachers by creating the JLab Science Activities for Teachers program, funded by Jefferson Science Associates. JLab Science Activities for Teachers is a tremendous outreach program and provides an additional 40 local middle school teachers with interactive activities to enhance physical science instruction at the middle school level as well as lectures by Jefferson Lab staff on the applications of science. The program is offered for the full 9-monthschool year and positively impacts an additional 4,000 students each and every year.
