NC Science Festival K-12 Opportunities

It's almost fall, but it's not too early to start thinking about spring. The North Carolina Science Festival will return in April 2019 and right now applications for elementary and middle school initiatives already are available. For elementary schools, Duke Energy Foundation is helping produce STEM activities and materials that will be sent at no cost to 170 schools across the state. Learn about the Duke Energy Science Night program. For middle schools, support from Novozymes is helping to match dozens of STEM professionals around the state to facilitate classroom visits to educate and inspire the next generation of potential scientists. Get more on Novozymes SciMatch Program. These are just a couple of the many things comprising the NC Science Festival every April. Check out the event website to keep up with all the plans leading up to 2019. Finally, a quick reminder about CASMT. The Career Award for Science and Mathematics Teachers, or CASMT, is a five-year award available to outstanding science and/or mathematics teachers in North Carolina public schools.
