Goal: Develop a coherent, modular three-year high school science curriculum

ARISE is a new coalition with roots in a workshop convened by Leon M. Lederman in the Chicago suburbs on September 22-24, 1995. A group of high school teachers, scientists and educators who met to address the issue of high school science education concluded that we have a golden opportunity to rethink the curriculum that has been offered in U.S. high schools over the past 100 years.

The workshop raised the prospect of a complete redoing, a renaissance, of the high school science sequence. The burden of achieving a successful renaissance will require a sustained partnership of industry, educators, scientists and communities.

We invite your comments on the project.
