The Partnership for Science Literacy is a national initiative of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to increase awareness among parents and familiesparticularly those in Latino/Hispanic, African American, and other minority communitiesof the value of science literacy for all children.
The Partnership is building a coalition of local and national organizations to empower families to improve their children's interest in and learning of science. The initiative is built around four key ideas: (1) that science education is for every child, (2) that science is everywhere in our everyday lives, (3) that parents and families can make a huge difference in helping their children with science education, and (4) that science is a lot of fun! While national in scope, the Partnership starts with a focus on science resources in five diverse communities: Austin, Chicago, the Lehigh Valley (in eastern PA), Los Angeles, and Tampa.
