Investing in Philadelphia Schools:
The mission of the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership is to build lasting synergies among the Noyce programs in the greater Philadelphia region that will strengthen all aspects of the STEM teacher pipeline: recruitment, pre-service preparation, induction, and ongoing development and growth throughout a teacher’s career, in ways that no individual institution would be able to achieve alone.
