The Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA)

The Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) is a grant from the National Center for Research Resources, a division of the National Institutes of Health. The SEPA program was established in 1991 to develop partnerships between scientists and educators to improve precollege science education and the public's understanding of science.

The SEPA program supports the following projects:
