The Wipro Science Education Fellowship is a program sponsored by Wipro (www.wipro.com) and based upon the success of the Boston Science Partnership’s Science Education Fellowship, which was supported through the National Science Foundation from 2009 to 2012. The fellowship is a two-year-long program for experienced teachers which uses a model of teacher support and development to increase the quality of teaching and leadership in science throughout several districts. This model includes a comprehensive set of activities designed to improve teacher practice, focusing on the outcome of increased achievement in science for all students. Currently in the Greater New York region, the University of Massachusetts Boston is partnering with Mercy College and Montclaire State University. The three universities run parallel programs in northern New Jersey, New York and the Boston area, extending the community of participating teachers to these areas.
