Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists

The Office of Science Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists program continues the Department’s long-standing role of training young scientists, engineers and technicians in the scientifically and technically advanced environment of our National Laboratories. Through providing a wide variety of college undergraduates the opportunity to work side by side with many of the world’s best scientists and use the most advanced scientific instruments available, this program intends to expand the nation’s supply of well-trained scientists and engineers, especially in the physical sciences where the greatest demand lies. By providing K-14 teachers, mentor-intensive laboratory fellowships, this program will greatly enhance their content knowledge and skills of mathematics and science and can contribute to the national goal of a qualified teacher in every classroom.
