Abstract: National Standards insist that we need to do a better job of teaching science and prospective teachers need to be competent in both the content and process standards to teach children effectively. To improve prospective teacher preparation with respect to science, elementary education majors at Seton Hall University in New Jersey take 2 science methods courses as a part of their elementary education program and create lessons and projects that integrate technology with content and process skills to be learned. Three unique field experiences in science education help students to experience and learn more about science and develop teaching skills as well. The benefits of real world internships at science and environmental centers and a technology-themed school are discussed as alternatives to regular classroom internships for teacher candidates.
