  • Teachers participating in the science fellowship will apply to work as part of a 3-teacher team from their school/district.
  • Educators accepted to the fellowship will receive a $5,000 stipend and join a supportive learning community where they will learn about an innovative, research-based science teaching practice alongside talented science educators from other New Jersey districts and schools.
  • This year’s fellows will engage in Ambitious Science Teaching (AST), an innovative approach to science teaching grounded in eliciting students' ideas and supporting student sensemaking with NGSS three-dimensional science.
