NSTA New Science Teacher Academy

Posted by on June 2, 2009

As a cornerstone to building exceptional science educators for the future, this special Academy should be considered by new science teachers across the country.

NSTA will again select 185 teachers to participate as fellows in the 2009 Academy. NSTA Fellows chosen for the program receive a comprehensive membership package, online mentoring with trained mentors who teach in the same discipline, and the opportunity to participate in a variety of web-based professional development activities, including web seminars. In addition, each NSTA Fellow receives financial support to attend and participate in NSTA’s National Conference on Science Education, taking place in Philadelphia, March 17-21, 2010.

The deadline to submit applications for the 2009 NSTA New Science Teacher Academy has been extended to June 30, 2009. Science teachers located throughout the country, who will be entering their second or third year of teaching and whose schedule is a minimum of 51 percent middle or high school science, are encouraged to apply. Last year, more than 800 applications were received, and 185 teachers from 49 states and the District of Columbia were selected to participate.
