Project CRESST

Co-directed by Foundations of Education department chair, Dr. Lisa Abrams, Project CRESST supports instruction in health and wellness by encouraging inquiry and authentic, collaborative and multidisciplinary instructional strategies.

A partnership between the VCU’s School of Education, the School of Pharmacy, Center for Clinical and Translational Research and VCU Life Sciences, Project CRESST centers around a week-long summer professional development academy for secondary science and health/physical education teachers.

These summer activities are supplemented by extensive curricular materials that translate CRESST’s concepts and approaches to the classroom that engage students, their families and the local community.
