Help a Teacher, Get a Donation for a Local School!
Share your expertise and enthusiasm for science with a teacher as an ACS Science Coach! As a year-long science coach, you will have the opportunity to interact with students by presenting demonstrations, helping in the lab, answering content questions, or providing real-world science examples. Together, you and an elementary, middle, or high school teacher decide how to combine your time and talents. ACS donates $500 to the school of every Science Coaches partnership.
Applications are being accepted until all space is filled or until October 30, whichever comes first. If you have additional questions, you may contact Stephanie Prosack at email@example.com.
