A variety of student-scientist partnerships (SSPs) have evolved over the years in the K-12 classroom, providing students, teachers, and scientists with activities and experiences not available from any other source. Characteristically these activities are inquiry-based or design-oriented and aligned with Benchmarks (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1993), (National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, 1996a), and numerous state frameworks for science education that call for students to understand the process of inquiry.
