Educators Tap into Science Education

K-12 science educators across the U.S. and Canada can access numerous resources when they participate in the 2001 National Science Teachers Association’s (NSTA) Teacher Award Programs (TAP). The 14 programs, administered by NSTA and funded by various corporations and organizations, award more than half a million dollars to instructors who are committed to making a difference in science teaching and learning. The TAPs recognize science teachers, principals and others who demonstrate their passion for science education in many different ways. Many of the awards recognize teachers for their development and implementation of unique science programs and curricula, while others honor individuals who show outstanding leadership and dedication to the profession.
