What is SciTrain?

SciTrain is a research initiative to train high school math and science teachers to be more effective instructors for students with disabilities. Through surveys, focus groups, and teacher evaluations, SciTrain pursues the goal of understanding what accommodations are currently made in classrooms, and which ones are most needed. SciTrain is the home for online training modules that teachers can use to enhance the learning experience for students with disabilities and provide accommodations to improve the success of all of their students.

  • 3 courses available: Science, Computer Science and Mathematics
  • Accommodations: Resources for teachers on specific accommodations for students with disabilities
  • Search References: Searchable database of references and publications for teachers

Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, SciTrain works to help high school science and mathematics teachers provide the highest quality education to students with disabilities. The project includes research, instruction for teachers on how to make their coursework, classrooms and labs more accessible, and information resources for teachers including assistive technology for their courses.
