Side-by-Side Abstract (PDF, 138kb): Download this document prepared by the Museum that abstracts significant recommendations from relevant policy reports published in recent years on improving science education. We will also distribute a bibliography at the Summit.

Finally, thank you for being a participant in Science Generation. We use the word "participant" purposely, as we plan on a lively dialogue and look forward to supporting effective, sustained action post-Summit to accelerate improvement in science education for all of our nation's students.

We look forward to greeting you on April 8!
