Bayer Awards $200,000 to National Science Teachers Association to Nurture Early-Career Science Teachers

Ten Bayer-NSTA Fellows Named to 2008-09 NSTA New Science Teacher Academy

PITTSBURGH, March 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bayer Corporation's Bayer USA Foundation has awarded the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) a $200,000 grant to create the Bayer-NSTA Fellows program and to expand the NSTA New Science Teacher Academy.

Bayer-NSTA Fellows receive a comprehensive NSTA membership package, online mentoring with trained instructors who teach in the same discipline and the opportunity to participate in a variety of Web-based professional development activities, including Web seminars. They also will receive financial support to attend NSTA's 2009 National Conference on Science Education.
