Institute for School Partnership

The Institute for School Partnership (ISP) is WUSTL’s signature effort to improve teaching and learning strategically within the K-12 education community, with a special emphasis on STEM education. Through ISP, local schools are connected with a world-class research university, teachers are inspired with new knowledge, and teachers and students are empowered with the best resources. Among the recent success of the ISP are the MySci program, which gives early elementary students and teachers access to innovative explorations of plants, animals, and the earth through its mobile learning vehicle. With the help of a grant from the St. Louis-based Monsanto Fund, the ISP opened the MySci Resource Center in February 2013 that houses classrooms, meeting rooms and a warehouse of educational science materials.
