Grants for STEM Teachers
Last year The Scientists’ Society started a grant program for science teachers. We awarded 28 teachers with a $200 grant to use for science supplies. The only requirement was to produce receipts. After receiving very positive feedback, we are running the program again this year, and forty $200 grants been approved. Send an email to President@science-swfl.org to request an application.
The Scientists’ Society of SW Florida has many members willing to make formal or informal presentations on many STEM subjects drawing from experience gained in their current or former careers. Such presentations could be made to classes, science clubs or professional groups. Past topics have included aerospace and engineering, semiconductors, computer chips, space astronomy, preparing for a medical education, medical devices, nuclear medicine, physiology, physical therapy, fire science, biology, chemistry, etc.
To request a speaker or to suggest a topic please compose an email addressed to email@example.com. Include your name, the venue, the audience and requested dates (with alternatives). Allow a few days for us to reply.
Science Fair Judging
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, during the past year teachers found it difficult and sometimes impossible to create the environment they needed to have Science Fairs for their students. This resulted in far fewer schools having their usual Science Fair. We are confident that we will return to normal during the 2021-2022 school year.
The Scientists’ Society, and I as the Coordinator, will work hard to support you. We will put together the judges, the speakers, and help with the products that you need to help you get to your goals. If you need to have us involved from the very first day of school right up to the time where we hand you the results of the judging that we complete for you, we will be there.
You can contact me, Dave Sampson, via cell phone or email to discuss what you need from us and when you need it.
