Program Description

Regeneron’s new STEM education and outreach program, Activating Science Research Teaching, aims to increase access, capacity and quality of science research education programs. The Program would equip high school science research teachers with the knowledge, insights and skills to start or scale up their program to provide high school students with in-depth, challenging science research opportunities to conduct hands-on research under the mentorship of professional scientists. 

Through Activating Science Research Teaching, Regeneron will underwrite an intensive, one-week of customized consulting sessions with the science research teacher in each of three (3) schools selected. The program will be facilitated by 30+ year science research teacher veteran and founder of the award-winning science research program at Yorktown High School in NY, Michael Blueglass.

The program aims to help schools start or strengthen their high school science research program. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their interest in building and/or growing such a program, readiness and capacity in terms of finances and faculty, as well as their administration’s level of support for this program. Each workshop would run at or near the high school for four and a half days in the summer. A possible schedule would be Monday to Thursday from 8:00am-3:00pm and Friday from 8:00am-12:00pm. In addition, teacher fellows will receive continued support via phone and email throughout the school year.

Please remember that online application deadline is Tuesday, April 30th at 11:59 pm
