The Northrop Grumman Foundation Teachers Academy is now accepting applications for the 2018–2019 program. The program—designed specifically for middle school teachers (grades 5–8)—was established to help enhance teacher confidence and classroom excellence in science, engineering and technology, while increasing teacher understanding about the skills needed for a scientifically literate workforce. The Academy, which is directed by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), will support up to 29 teachers of physical science, engineering, and/or technology located in school districts in select Northrop Grumman communities in the United States, as well as from Australia. The teachers will be immersed throughout the year in a host of blended professional learning opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.
Current middle school (grades 5–8) physical science, engineering, and technology classroom teachers, located in school districts in select Northrop Grumman communities, who have at a minimum two years of middle school classroom teaching experience and have a strong desire to advance engineering and technology education by applying real-world applications in the classroom, can apply to become a Teacher Fellow.
For the FIRST Chesapeake District, this includes the area of Baltimore / Sykesville, MD, Washington DC, Northern Virginia.
Northrop Grumman is a long-time sponsor of FIRST Chesapeake.
