|FDA/NSTA Professional Development Program in Food Science||June 19, 2013|
The FDA/NSTA Professional Development Program in Food Science is a sustained professional development opportunity for Middle Level and High School Science Teachers. Family and Consumer Science (FACS) teachers of food-related content are also encouraged to apply. Taking advantage of the new understandings in food science, educators have an opportunity to provide topically relevant lessons in food science for their students.
To prepare teachers to do this requires a sustained effort. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) partnered to initiate and implement a professional development program in Food Science consistent with the National Science Education Standards. This ongoing program is supported and directed by the Food & Drug Administration and administered by the Graduate School, Washington DC.
Selected middle-level and high school science and FACS educators will have an opportunity to be involved in a multi-dimensional professional development program.
Applicants must be citizens of the Unites States, be certified and instruct in a public or private school in the US or US territories.
