About Washington State LASER

Washington State Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER) is a public/private partnership launched in 1999 using a science education reform model developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center (formerly the National Science Resources Center). The Washington State LASER partnership is led by the Science and Education Division of Pacific Science Center in Seattle and the Office of STEM Education at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Pacific Science Center serves as the fiscal agent for the partnership and manages LASER’s statewide technical assistance efforts.

Other key members of the Washington State LASER partnership are the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Washington’s Educational Service Districts and lead school districts from around the state. Funding for Washington State LASER is provided through OSPI and the Washington State Legislature, Battelle, and the Boeing Company.

Washington State LASER helps school districts:

  • Build their knowledge of current research and best practices.
  • Develop a shared vision and set of common goals.
  • Design and implement a school district infrastructure for support.
  • Emphasize improving instructional practice.
  • Focus on increasing student learning and achievement.

To enhance its efforts, LASER has connected with National Science Foundation (NSF) Implementation and Dissemination Center efforts (e.g., Biological Sciences Curriculum Studies (BSCS) Center for Professional Development – National Academy for Curriculum Leadership), NSF and Department of Education Math and Science Partnership projects, NSF Local Systemic Change initiatives and support from federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Energy, National Institutes of Health, Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Aeronautical and Space Administration to help improve science education in Washington State.

Six Elements Of Reform

1. Strategies for building and sustaining administrative and community support for science education reform:

Planning and implementing a research-based science program requires the support of a broad range of stakeholders who share a vision of what is needed to create an effective science program for students in their school district. It is likewise important to establish an infrastructure that will support this shared vision.

Key players in science education reform at the district level include both individuals and organizations. The endorsement of school district leaders is essential. Equally important is the involvement of community organizations, including museums, universities, and local corporations and businesses. Scientists and engineers, as well as parents, can help leverage support for science education reform.

An applied scientist, for example, may team with a teacher to lead a professional development program; parents may volunteer to help replenish science kits in the district’s materials center; a corporate leader may serve as a spokesperson for science education reform with the business community.

Working together, these individuals can form partnerships that will ensure a sustained commitment to science education reform.

2. Assessment methods consistent with the goals of a research-based science program:

Research-based science calls for new assessment strategies. Student assessments that are interwoven, or embedded, into science learning experiences are particularly useful. Because such assessments aim at assessing what students know and are able to do as a result of their inquiry, they are sometimes called “authentic” assessment.

In addition to student assessments, program assessments are required to determine whether the science program is meeting its goals and to guide curriculum selection, professional development, and other activities.

3. Research-Based science instructional materials produced through a review process:

Comprehensive, research-based instructional materials lies at the heart of an effective science education program. The instructional materials must be research-based. Materials should be developed collaboratively by educators and scientists, field-tested, and evaluated before being published. Each unit must provide developmentally appropriate opportunities for children to expand their understanding of science concepts, to acquire skills, and to develop positive attitudes toward science. Lessons must address the variety of learning styles that students bring to their learning, must challenge all students, and must give students opportunities to apply what they have learned to real life situations. The lessons must offer opportunities for teachers to integrate science learning with other areas of the curriculum. Finally, the instructional materials must be consistent with the National Science Education Standards of the National Research Council and with state learning frameworks.

4. Cost effective materials support systems for supplying materials and apparatus to classrooms:

Students who engage in inquiry-centered science require a variety of science materials from hand lenses, to magnets, to plastic droppers. A materials support system is needed to ensure that science kits are ready for classroom use. Materials support staff take charge of ordering new supplies, refurbishing science kits, and ensuring that kits are delivered to teachers when needed. Centralizing the materials support function makes materials support activities more efficient and cost-effective. Centralization is most commonly done at the district level; small school districts may consolidate the materials support function by forming consortia.

5. Professional development programs that prepare teachers to support students in research-based, inquiry-centered science:

Professional development is the process through which a school district prepares its teachers to teach research-based science. Professional development programs focus initially on helping teachers learn how to use science materials and on classroom management techniques. Later, attention turns to helping teachers learn how to facilitate an inquiry-centered approach to learning, how to develop appropriate methods for student assessment, and how to integrate science with other subject areas.

6. Teaching strategies that link science with literacy – reading, writing, and speaking: Research has shown that inquiry-centered learning increases student performance in language arts. Inquiry provides students with regular practice in linking metacognition to language arts skills of reading, writing, and speaking. Teaching strategies such as note-booking do much more than document steps of an investigation. These strategies also provide a channel for students to describe their thought process and the evidence that supports their reasoning.

National Science Resources Center

The National Science Resources Center (NSRC) is operated by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academies, comprising the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council. The NSRC’s goal is to improve the teaching of science in the nation’s schools. The NSRC collects and disseminates information about exemplary science teaching resources, develops innovative science instructional materials, and offers an outreach program of leadership enhancement and technical assistance to help school districts implement and sustain research-based science programs.

ESD 171/NC LASER AllianceNorth Central Washington is a region comprised of twenty-nine school districts ranging geographically from Oroville on the Canadian Border to Wilson Creek in the center of the state, from the Bavarian mountains of Leavenworth on the western edge to the high desert of Grand Coulee Dam to the East. In service of these many rural and remote district, the North Central STEM Cooperative provides STEM materials to twenty-three districts and maintains the vision of the Smithsonian’s LASER model.

The vision of the Alliance/Consortium is simple:
Member districts, in league with the NCESD, working together to ensure success in science education for all students.
Working together is defined as collaborative pooling of resources including time, energy, ideas, personnel, expertise and funds.

Success is defined as:
Science literate students understand and can articulate and apply science concepts according to state and national standards.
Students use science as the context for learning and excelling in math, reading, writing and other disciplines.
Students become life-long learners who enjoy and are excited by the study of science.
Students become citizens who can apply science knowledge and skills in real life to solve problems and make informed decisions.

Toward this vision, the Alliance has established short and long term goals to include:
Adoption of a regionally-standardized K-8 curriculum supported by collectively purchased standards and inquiry-based materials, refurbished at a regionally centralized location.
Development of a teacher leadership network across the region for use in professional development and the development of excellent support materials, assessments and teaching strategies.
Excellent grade level, and materials specific professional development that includes strong elements of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), literacy, and alignment to state strandards and initiatives.
Development of regionally standardized classroom based assessments, rubrics, and the sharing of the data from those assessments to inform strategies and teacher practices which lead to student success.

The Institute for Systems Biology’s Logan Center for Education coordinates the North Sound LASER Alliance (NSLA). The NSLA formally encompasses school districts in King County but is welcoming to other districts across the greater Puget Sound region. The districts that comprise the NSLA are large and small, urban and rural, and comprise a significant percentage of the State’s student population. While each NSLA district is at a different stage in the process, each is working to transition to full implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). NSLA activities support districts in identifying and addressing system-wide components of a strategic transition plan such as the science professional learning needed by teachers and administrators or adaptation strategies to move current curriculum to a NGSS framework.

The NSLA region is home to districts with diverse contexts. Therefore, rather than providing common, regional professional development for educators, the NSLA supports job-alike networks to address the contemporary issues in science education. Specifically, the NSLA facilitates a network of school district science coaches (or TOSAs – teachers on special assignment). The Science TOSA Network meets quarterly to work on common problems of practice and to share resources coaches can employ in support of classroom science teachers. Additionally, the NSLA periodically hosts cross-district events, known as Networking Forums. These forums convene school district teams (comprised of administrators, teachers and community members) to develop/enhance district-wide strategic plans related to science and STEM education.

Please contact the NSLA Co-Directors for a calendar of upcoming events or general information about the Alliance.

South Sound LASER Alliance – SSLA operates as a network of school district leaders with three codirectors who share the leadership and organizational duties of the Alliance Director role.  SSLA has met monthly for well over ten years to engage in shared learning that supports our common interests around science education reform. Since 2013 we have centered on implementing the high-leverage innovations of the Next Generation Science Standards.  Since 2015 SSLA has operated with an explicit focus on equity. That is, we want to change instructional practices and school/district structures that contribute to the historically inequitable access to STEM-related careers. We have about 11 districts that attend regularly, but our meetings are also occasionally attended by leaders from other districts, PSESD, NSLA, and community-based organizations who have shared interests.  This crossover attendance is a reciprocal arrangement for many SSLA members. SSLA uses its network to develop teacher and leadership professional development that builds the capacity of people and systems in our region.
