Want a way to help your community directly support your local science teachers? We've got one! The National Center for Science Education piloted the Science Booster Club project in Iowa May of 2015. As of 2017, we went national! Clubs are up and running in Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Maryland, Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Illinois, and Nebraska. We are looking forward to continuing to hear stories about our clubs' work on the ground in these diverse, challenging areas. We are currently interviewing new candidate leaders in Wisconsin, Colorado, and Massachusetts, and we're looking for people from a couple more states to join up in 2018. Please get in touch if you want to volunteer!

NCSE’s Science Booster Club project is ready for limited national launch. As we continue to learn from our experiences at our research base in Iowa, we are also rolling out our program at test sites nationwide. Are you active in one of our current states? Send Emily an email at schoerning @ ncse. com, we'll figure out a way for you to help!
We want to know what your local teachers need and help you find ways to bring fun science events to your community.
