SCI America Scholars – Teacher Recognition


Outstanding Science Teacher Recognition

Because a person’s interest in science or chemistry often begins with a positive high school experience, scholars are asked to nominate an outstanding teacher who played a significant role in their choice of college major.  Teachers are recognized with a certificate and a $1000 grant to be used for classroom purposes.  These dedicated teachers encourage students to become scientifically literate citizens. Their outstanding contributions in the classroom truly make a difference in the lives of the students they teach and the communities they serve.
