When was the last time you had a professional development experience that was specifically designed with the science teacher in mind? A professional development opportunity where you can see yourself as a scientist and an integral part of a scientific community? Where you get to experience the processes of science that we try to provide for our students?
The Murdock Charitable Trust recognizes the importance and value of science education and the importance of transformative experiences around science research and education. The Partners in Science Program has been such a transformative experience for over 600 science teachers for over 30 years.
The $19,000 grant provides stipends, travel and academic year enrichment funds for science teachers over two summers experiencing authentic research and doing innovative science in a lab to ultimately influence classroom practices. This video shows some of your colleagues and their students explaining how it has impacted them.
The deadline for applications is December 1st each year. For more information and to start the process of applying for the grant, click here.
