The goal of the OpenSciEd Equitable Instruction (OEI) Initiative is to help disrupt inequalities in science education by supporting schools and teachers in instruction that begins with the interests and curiosities of students and empowers student voice to support more equitable learning opportunities for all students. In partnership with One8 and MassSTEM Hub, the OEI Initiative will recruit, select, provide grants, and support schools through professional learning and on the ground support as they implement the OpenSciEd curriculum.
