Developing Understanding of the Nature of Science Within a Professional Development Program for Inservice Elementary Teachers: Project Nature of Elementary Science Teaching
The current article describes and evaluates an inservice program designed to build elementary teachers’ understanding of Nature of Science (NOS) and an awareness of how NOS impacts science classroom instruction.

Implications for improvements to further develop teacher understanding of NOS are discussed.
