Interdisciplinary Science and Research Program

The Interdisciplinary Science & Research (ISR) Program is a partnership between the Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach and Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools to enhance students' understandings of STEM concepts and research principles and to empower teachers through scientific research. ISR course offerings are available to students at Stratford STEM Magnet High School, Hillsboro High School and John Overton High School. All courses are co-taught by a scientist-teacher team focused on individualized instruction to meet student needs. The program transitions students from understanding the basics of scientific disciplines in the first year to performing independent research in their junior and senior years. The Interdisciplinary Science & Research Program is elevating the learning and teaching of science, preparing students to solve 21st century problems.

This project was supported by the National Center for Research Resources and the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives of the National Institutes of Health through Grant Number R25 OD011119.
