Program Partners

Partners bring vital expertise and other knowledge to our programs, and building highly collaborative, respectful partner relationships is fundamental to Multiverse’s success. Our extensive network of program partners demonstrates the diversity and complexity of our work. For example, teachers and school districts bring experience with curriculum and science education standards, and help us establish guidelines for implementing newly developed classroom resources. Education research and evaluation experts help us to establish clear goals and measurable outcomes at the beginning phase of each new project. Scientists and science centers help us convey new knowledge, while partners with expertise on specific cultures and communities make us aware of and adapt to different perspectives on natural phenomenon and the gathering and sharing of evidence-based knowledge.

Below is a list of both current and past Multiverse program partners. For more information on our partners, or if you represent a potential new program partner interested in collaboration, please contact us.
