The Science Magnet Program in a Large City School System.
Strahler, Violet R.
This paper, presented at the National Science Teachers Association conference in April, 1972, in New York City, describes a unique school (called a "magnet" school) designed for Dayton, Ohio. With open enrollment and adequate transportation, students will come from all parts of the city. The school will offer basic and required courses in all subject areas, as well as advanced science and mathematics courses, special mini-courses, and independent study providing continuous progress and self-paced learning. Students will be assisted in designing and conducting individual and small group research projects and will participate in a research seminar. Audio-tutorial programs have already begun in biology. Computer time-sharing service is already offered to students and will be developed in the center in a mathematics laboratory. In addition to other options, the program will offer a science materials laboratory where all Dayton teachers may have access to the use of specialized science equipment, laboratory space and materials not available in elementary schools and where teachers may swap science equipment and other materials.
