The Fleet Inquiry Institute (FII)

Debbie DeRoma
Reuben H. Fleet Science Center

The Fleet Inquiry Institute (FII) is the Science Center’s teacher professional development program designed to increase student academic achievement in math and science through the deepening of teacher content knowledge and inquiry pedagogy. Over the last six years, the FII received significant government funding to develop and implement this program with more than 300 teachers in the region. In order to continue and expand the work of the FII the program needs to develop additional funding sources. We hope by introducing the Lyncean Group to the Fleet Inquiry Institute our members will be able to help FII identify additional government and private contacts leading to new funding sources.
