The program is called Leaders in Science. Fifth-grade teachers are targeted because they are responsible for preparing students for more advanced middle school science. The program will also send museum staff into DISD classrooms armed with everything from experiments to animal skeletons.
Leaders in Science is funded by $285,000 raised by the Dallas Citizens Council, an organization made up of business leaders.
