Science In Motion (SIM) supports middle and high schools by providing:
- mobile educators (traveling teachers) to the schools with multiple sets of equipment and supplies needed to give every student a hands-on experience;
- equipment and materials to teachers independent of the mobile educators to allow greater access to advanced laboratory equipment and resources;
- professional development opportunities for teachers to keep high-school/middle courses up to date with the latest discoveries in science.
SIM was founded at Juniata College in 1987. There are currently 11 colleges and universities in Pennsylvania serving over 200 school districts.
