DEEPS STEP (Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Science Science-Teaching and Education Program)

Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences’ Science-Teaching and Education Program (DEEP STEP) is an outreach program that works in partnership with Providence Public Schools’ Department (PPSD) to develop and bring Earth Science lessons into local elementary classrooms. We develop quarter-long, multi-lesson Earth Science Modules for grades 2-5 that are aligned with grade-specific Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and are centered on inquiry-driven science learning. Our volunteers co-teach the Modules with participating teachers in three Providence public schools (Vartan Gregorian, Pleasant View and Martin Luther King).
