    The goal of Ambitious Science Teaching is to help students of all backgrounds to:

    • Deeply understand fundamental science ideas,
    • Participate in the practices of science,
    • Solve authentic problems together, and
    • Learn how to continue learning on their own.

    Each meeting will offer ways to engage whether you are just learning about Next Generation Science Standards or have been teaching it for years.  We would LOVE to have YOU there!

    Ambitious Science Teaching books will be delivered to your school site while quantities last.

    This webinar will introduce Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) to middle and high school science teachers across the US and Canada and share an exciting paid opportunity with teachers to bring Air Quality into their science classrooms. 

    We are looking to recruit middle and high school science teachers to pilot the AQ6-12 lesson in their classroom and provide the K12 Education Committee with feedback. Selected teachers may earn a $1,000.00 stipend during the Spring 2023 semester for completing all tasks. Teachers from public, charter, and private or independent schools who teach environmental science topics in their science classrooms are eligible to apply. We anticipate about 10 hours of work.

    We strongly encourage Title I middle and high school science teachers to submit an application as well as middle and high school science teachers from schools in areas chronically exposed to poor air quality.
