Bridging a Distance in Education

Scientific American is backing a new STEM education initiative that tries to connect scientists, mathematicians, and engineers with public school teachers and classrooms.

The mission is to “seek scientists who are willing to volunteer to advise on curricula, answer a classroom’s questions, or visit a school”for instance, to do a lab or to talk about what you do.” The initial goal is a directory of STEM professionals by the 2011-12 school year and say “How much you choose to participate will be up to you.”

Overall they want to make “it easier for scientists and teachers to connect.”

For a brief post on the program visit GOOD or visit Scientific American for a direct link to more details and the registration information.
