The application for the 2016-17 school year is closed.
Step 1. Choose 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 Coaches Teams facilitator. Chemists contribute to an online forum with three chemistry teachers.
Step 2. Sign Up!
Applications for the upcoming school year open in May. The application is a two-part process consisting of an application from a chemist, and an application from the partner teacher. Only after both application parts are completed will the partnership be considered for Science Coaches One-on-One.
Step 3. Application Evaluation
Applications are evaluated to determine how well they align with the mission of Science Coaches: To help science teachers provide innovative science education to their students through the enthusiasm of a volunteer chemist.
