Science Coaches Application Deadline Extended!

By AACT on September 2, 2021

Did you miss the September 1st Science Coaches application deadline? You're in luck! We've extended the application period through September 6th, so this holiday weekend, complete your Science Coaches application for the opportunity to work throughout the school year with a professional chemist who can collaborate with you and your students!

Science Coaches can support you in many ways, including:

  • helping design more inquiry-based lab activities
  • speaking to students about their education or career journeys in chemistry
  • guest lecturing on a specific academic topic or the coach's research field
  • developing a plan to organize the prep room and dispose of expired chemicals
  • organizing virtual or in-person field trips to the coach's workplace
  • supporting an after-school science club or competition team

And if you already know a chemistry professional you'd like to work with, even better! Make sure they meet the coach requirements, then encourage them to complete the coach application by September 6th.

These are only a few of the ways coaches have supported teachers in the past! What creative new ways will you find to collaborate with your coach? You'll never know if you don't apply, so go to the Science Coaches page to learn more and apply today!
