Abstract: This three-year longitudinal study reports on a community of principals that supports scaling of technology-enhanced science. Twenty-one principals participated; seven participated in the community and fourteen provided a comparison group. Data include community of principal meetings, interviews and curriculum implementation records. Results describe: (a) shifts in principals' understanding of leadership for technology-enhanced science and (b) changes in numbers of teachers integrating technology-enhanced science over time. Research-based heuristics for developing community for scaling innovation are provided.
