What to Expect

Each Science Coaches partnership is different. Clear communication with your teacher is important to determine mutual goals and objectives for a successful school year.

Time Requirements

Science Coaches partnerships are required to meet face-to-face at least six times per school year.

Examples of Coach Activities

  • Provide advice on real-world applications of lessons, demos, or experiments
  • Help develop or enhance lesson plans
  • Serve as a science mentor
  • Promote inquiry-based learning
  • Support classroom-based experiments
  • and much more!

These are just examples of some of the ways you can coach!
