MISSION

The mission of the ESCAPE project is to provide teacher professional development that integrates the arts and sciences in newly developed standards-based curricula using innovative teaching methods to increase elementary school student achievement.

OVERVIEW

The Equitable Science Curriculum integrating Arts in Public Education (ESCAPE) is a multi-year National Science Foundation-funded teacher professional development program with a rigorous research component led by the University of California, Irvine in partnership with the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Orange County School Districts, and the Orange County Department of Education. The program is employing creative movement and the visual arts to help children better understand scientific concepts, reverse scientific misconceptions, and reduce cognitive load through the educational techniques of embodied cognition. Over the five years of the program (2014-2019), approximately 240 teachers are being taught how to use engaging inquiry and arts-based instructional methods to enhance the achievement of approximately 30,000 students in grades 3 through 5. Professional quality video is being produced throughout to support the delivery of curriculum content and the development of an online certification program
