TESLA is a passionate group of future elementary school teachers dedicated to improving science teaching in their own classrooms and school communities.  In addition to gaining valuable skills as future science educators, TESLA members have also established a strong relationship with with Discovery Space of Central Pennsylvania, located in downtown State College.  The partnership allows TESLA members to gain valuable experience working with children in informal science education settings, and Discovery Space educational programs and exhibits are strongly supported through TESLA’s involvement.  TESLA provides a community of support for involved elementary education majors to come together, bonding over a shared passion for science education.  The organization has been growing in amazing ways over the years, and many exciting things are still to come!
