National Park Service Teacher-Ranger-Teacher Program

http://www.teacherrangerteacher.org/

Deadline: 6/19/2019

K-12 teachers can spend the summer learning about the resources and educational materials available through the National Park Service. Most teacher-ranger-teachers (TRTs) engage in parks and park resources, participate in a webinar about lesson planning, develop at least one lesson to be used in their classroom or school, assist the park with an education project, and increase their understanding of place-based learning. Teachers can use this opportunity to infuse their teaching skills with NPS-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education resources and the use of primary sources and place-based learning. Professional development hours and graduate credit hours will be made available to participants through the University of Colorado, Denver.

The program aims to link National Park units and teachers from schools with underserved student populations in urban and rural school districts. Teachers spend the summer learning, and sometimes also living in the park. After their experience, they spend part of their classroom time presenting their TRT projects to their own students and to a wider education audience.

Visit the website for a list of program contacts by region, and contact the specific National Park you are interested in for its application materials. Application dates vary by park.

AVS Science Educators/STEM Workshop

Science-Educators-Workshop

Deadline: 8/9/2019

High school teachers can become eligible to receive an equipment grant including a new vacuum pump and vacuum jar for your school when you attend this two-day American Vacuum Society (AVS) workshop. The workshop features high school-ready lessons that integrate science, math, and engineering using hands-on vacuum technology-based activities. It also includes an on-site visit to a major industrial or research laboratory.

Local AVS chapters typically pay travel and lodging costs to send a teacher from their region to this hands-on workshop. After completing it, teachers receive continuing education credit. The next workshop will be held on October 21-22, 2019, in Columbus, Ohio.

Expanding Your Horizons: Motivating Young Women in Science and Mathematics

The Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging young women to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers. The EYH Network coordinates more than 85 hands-on math and science conferences each year. These conferences nurture girls' interest in science and math courses, encouraging them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

ASM's Kishor M. Kulkarni Distinguished High School Teacher Award

http://www.asminternational.org/foundation/teachers/teachers-award

This award, offered by ASM International, the materials information society, recognizes the accomplishments of a U.S. high school science teacher who has demonstrated a significant and sustained impact on pre-college-age students. Suggested candidates include past recipients of ASM Foundation K-12 Teacher Grants and graduates of the ASM Materials Camp Teachers Camp program. ASM Trustees and ASM Foundation Trustees may nominate a teacher candidate who does not belong to these two categories. The award includes a cash grant of $2,000 plus the recipient's travel cost of up to $500 (to receive the award at the ASM Awards Dinner).
