Noyce Educational Community Stays Connected Virtually | December 18, 2020
As many teachers rise to the challenge of instructing their students virtually, the educators and researchers who contribute to the training of those teachers as part of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program are investigating how best to prepare science and math teachers virtually. Noyce program participants are also rethinking how to come together as a community in service of their shared goals: supporting students and professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics as they become math and science teachers in K-12 classrooms. The American Association for the Advancement of Science held two virtual convenings in summer 2020 that brought together Noyce project leads and the pre-service and practicing teachers who are part of the Noyce program.
