Date: Feb. 3, 2010, 10:00 a..m. – 3:30 p.m. Location: Eli Lilly and Company, Corporate Headquarters, Indianapolis, Indiana.

On behalf of the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), Indiana Superintendent for Public Instruction Tony Bennett has announced that 2010 is the “Year of Science,” a start for science education reform in Indiana.

On February 3, 2010, IDOE and I-STEM will partner with Eli Lilly and Company to host the first Indiana Science Summit. The summit will bring together stakeholders from around the state to listen and discuss alternatives for improving science education.

The summit will be centered on a strategic plan developed in partnership with the National Science Resources Center (NSRC) that supports inquiry-based science education. Also to be discussed is the need for such a system to sustain professional development and practical methods for implementing research-based science curriculum.

Eli Lilly and Company will host the summit at their corporate headquarters in downtown Indianapolis. Though the meeting is not open to the public, those wanting to view it will be able to watch live at UStream.com. A link will be provided on the I-STEM Website. Elementary teachers, middle and high school science teachers, administrators, curriculum directors, higher education, community and business leaders are encouraged to participate in this very important event.
