Science Classroom Outreach Opportunity
The National Center for Science Education is launching Scientists in the Classroom, an exciting new program that connects early career scientists with local classrooms! We are looking in particular for graduate students and postdocs who are interested in working with local teachers to talk about evolution and climate change science. The time commitment is low for the program, just two in-class visits to talk to the students about what it means to be a scientist and to do an interactive activity, but the impact on both students and teachers will be enormous. Scientists who participate in this program will have the opportunity to utilize their scientific expertise to help students understand climate change and evolution, and will be a part of inspiring the next generation of scientists and science savvy citizens! Signing up for the program is easy, scientists only need to fill out our quick survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SciSp16). For more details about the program please visit our website (http://ncseteach.com/index.php/scientist-in-the-classroom/) or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and I hope to see many ESWN scientists in classrooms, ready to inspire the next generation of women in STEM!
