The Virginia Mathematics & Science Coalition recognizes effective student and teacher educational programs through its “Programs that Work” Awards. The Coalition reviews exemplary programs for which there is evidence of a positive impact on student or teacher learning.
Proposals are evaluated on the extent to which they:
- Represent innovative, exemplary programs that have proven effective with all students or teachers;
- Demonstrate the important science concept skills or processes students and teachers learned as as result of the programs; and
- Document impact on teaching and learning.
