Science First! was a collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences at East Tennessee State University and Johnson City Schools that was supported through a grant from the National Science Foundation Division of Graduate Education GK-12 program. ETSU faculty and graduate fellows worked with the principal and teachers at North Side Elementary School of Math, Science and Technology to develop resources and revise the curriculum to one that was focused around science and mathematics. At the same time this provided an opportunity for the fellows, graduate students in mathematics, biology and chemistry, to work with the teachers and students and to learn to communicate math and science to different audiences.
