            The Science Employer Panel brings students and professionals together for an in-depth discussion of the job prospects and internship opportunities available to science graduates.  Students get direct access to insider information about a variety of science industries, while panelists get a chance to meet their future employees and share about why their business is a great place to work.  Connections made at the Science Employer Panel start new careers, and help drive Utah’s economic engine.

Learn the skills to make a difference in science education policy.
The American Association of Physics Teachers and the American Institute of Physics believe classroom teachers can (and should) be policy leaders. Through a program funded by the AIP Venture Partnership Fund, we seek to engage, empower and support K-12 classroom teachers of physics and physical science (including elementary teachers) as agents of change in physics education.







Get compensated for your expenses.
Funding will be provided for travel, meals and accommodations for two summer workshops in Washington, DC. Following the first summer workshop, participants will be expected to carry out their strategic plans for policy engagement during the 2018-2019 academic year.


















Choose your passion and engage others in your community.
Using a "problem-based learning approach," Fellows will use the workshop to explore solutions to their identified policy issue, learn about case studies in science policy from experienced science policy leaders and receive feedback from high profile people in local, state and national science education policy.

  *   Legislative Action
  *   District guidelines for professional practice
  *   State-level implementation of standards for learning and teacher professional development
  *   Availability of funds for content growth
  *   Equitable access to physics and physical science across all schools or grade levels
  *   Curricular materials and instructional resources
  *   Framework for K-12 Science Education and NGSS
