Science Teachers Take Advantage of this Opportunity

The Northrop Grumman Foundation Teachers Academy is beginning its fourth year and is nowaccepting applications for the 2018–2019 cohort. The program—designed specifically for middle school teachers (grades 5–8)—was established to help enhance teacher confidence and classroom excellence in science, engineering and technology, while increasing teacher understanding about the skills needed for a scientifically literate workforce. The Academy, which is directed by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), will support up to 29 teachers of physical science, engineering, and/or technology located in school districts in select Northrop Grumman communities in the United States, as well as from Australia. The teachers will be immersed throughout the year in a host of blended professional learning opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.
