Enrollment for the 2016-17 school year is closed.
Step 1. Decide Your Involvement
Chemists partner with science teachers to ignite students’ interest in science. Here are three ways you can be a Science Coach:
- Find and select an AACT teacher member. The chemist and teacher apply together to be in Science Coaches One-on-One.
- Apply to Science Coaches One-on-One without a teacher to be paired with one who lives nearby. (This does not guarantee a partner teacher.)
- Apply to be a Science Coach Group facilitator. Chemists monitor contribute to an online forum of three chemistry teachers.
Step 2. Sign Up!
Enrollment for upcoming school year opens in May.
The application is a two-part process comprising applications from a chemist and partner teacher. Only after both application parts are completed will the partnership be considered for Science Coaches One-on-One (if applicable).
Step 3. Application Evaluation
Applications are evaluated to determine how well they align with the mission of the ACS Science Coaches: To help science teachers provide innovative science education to their students through the enthusiasm of a volunteer chemist.
