New Science Education Program Responds to President's Call to Help Young People Excel in Science
Date:5/3/2010

DEERFIELD, Ill., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Astellas Pharma US, Inc. ("Astellas") announced the launch of "Science WoRx," a program designed to help science teachers inspire the next generation of scientists. The program features a hands-on education and mentoring program, an online resource portal and online networking communities. In addition, Science WoRx is hosting a competition, "Make My LabWoRx," inviting science teachers to submit their favorite original lesson plans for a chance to win lab equipment for their school.

Astellas' announcement follows the launch of President Obama's "Educate to Innovate" campaign, which signals a significant unmet need to improve students' performance in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. Recent studies reveal that U.S. students are trailing behind other developed countries in science literacy. In the latest Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) comparison study, U.S. students ranked 21st out of 30 in science literacy among developed countries.(1)  

In addition, according to the Lemelsen-MIT Invention Index, approximately one-third of teens indicate that they are discouraged from pursuing a career in STEM fields because they do not know anyone who works in these fields or understand what people in these fields do.(2)

"Science WoRx was developed to address the critical need for more resources in the classroom. The future Nobel Laureates in chemistry and medicine are sitting in our classrooms," said Seigo Kashii, president and CEO of Astellas Pharma US, Inc. "Our hope is that Science WoRx will provide teachers with the support they need to help prepare the world's pipeline of future scientists." '/>"/>
