Partners in Science $15,000 Grant for Secondary Science Teachers

The Partners in Science Program pairs secondary science teachers with a mentor (professional scientist) doing cutting-edge research in an academic lab or a lab associated with another nonprofit institution. The Trust awards approximately 25 Partners in Science grants each year to fund these teacher-mentor research projects in the Pacific Northwest. The goal of the program is to help teachers bring knowledge from the research experience directly into the classroom to promote inquiry-based science education.

Teachers work with their mentor scientists for two consecutive summers. After the first summer, teachers develop a brief pictorial poster showing their research to date for presentation at the National Partners in Science Conference in San Diego, CA. After the second year of work with their mentors, partners return to the conference to give an oral presentation on their progress. There is a $5000.00 stipend for the teacher each summer of research and four all paid conferences (two to Vancouver, Washington and two to San Diego, CA). Eight professional development credits are available and part of the grant can be used to pay for the credits.

The grant application is due December 1. For more information about Partners in Science please contact Kris Stone (rockingjkranch@gmail.com) and/or visit the website: https://murdocktrust.org/grant-opportunities/high-school-science-teachers-and-research-partners/

We are excited to kick off the second year of an Early STEM Project with BSU Children’s Center and College of Education focused on inclusion and inquiry-based learning. Our hope is that this mode will be replicated at other Universities in Idaho! #earlySTEM
