Global Competencies for 21st Century High School Science Curriculum: Integrated, Student-centered & Content-rich

Your Name and Title: Catherine Saldutti, President

School or Organization Name: EduChange, Inc.

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Malaysia

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): High School Science Educators & Administrators

Short Session Description (one line): See how we've married local & global issues across 5 major themes of HS science whilst maintaining rigorous science content learning and hands-on investigations.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
The pursuit of the question, the response to the problem—these are the foundations of the pure and applied sciences. Over ten years ago, this was our question:  “How can high school science better emulate global collaboration and tie local contexts to global challenges?” This session shares curricular design approaches, authentic science texts appropriate for HS students, our international arts & design competition, and designs for global student peer review. Participants receive a list of free resources to enhance global competencies in the science classroom! This two-year laboratory-driven program integrates Biology I, Chemistry I, and Physical Science/Physics coursework whilst incorporating mathematics, engineering, arts/design, and technology. We also considered curricular realities in secondary schools, and how to prepare more students to enter IB/DP, AP, Cambridge, independent research, and other demanding upper-level courses with more confidence and less anxiety. Materials from our 2013 update will be shared, including examples of recent international STEM collaborations in the pursuit of pressing global questions. This program is ready for your adaptations—come join our inquiry!

Hi Catherine -

For profit companies need to be sponsors in order to present. Have you talked to Steve about this?


Lucy Gray

Hi Lucy,

Sure, didn't realize that sponsorship was required for a presentation. Happy to talk to Steve.  Should I reach out to him directly or do you want to pass this along?


Yes, that's the policy for all of our conferences. Please send a note to Steve at if you're interested. Thanks!

Hi Lucy,

Talked with Steve and we're all set for sponsorship. Let me know what is next with the proposal process. I've submitted the proposal here.
