What is the LENS Project?
Learning Enhanced through the Nature of Science (LENS) is an innovative professional development program for high school science teachers. It has been twice funded by the Virginia Department of Education through a Math Science Partnership award. LENS has created a vibrant multi-site partnership between science and education faculty at Old Dominion University, Tidewater Community College, and the College of William and Mary. It now serves two cohorts of teachers from Virginia Beach City Public Schools, representatives of which have been actively engaged in shaping the program.
