Since 2008 more than 600 high school chemistry teachers have received ACS–Hach High School Chemistry Classroom Grants from the American Chemical Society to support ideas that enhance classroom learning, foster student development, and reveal the wonders of chemistry. Grants are typically offered for laboratory equipment and supplies, instructional materials, professional development, field studies, or science outreach events. Applicants can request up to $1,500. Interested applicants will find details about this grant on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.

Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of
digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM
resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned
to the most in February.
The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) is designed to challenge and engage students (grades 9–12) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The three-day event is organized by the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force and administered by the National Science Teachers Association, a nonprofit STEM education organization.
The KidWind Project and WindWinRI are hosting the twelfth annual REcharge Academy at the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center in Narragansett, Rhode Island, on July 15–18, 2019. The four-day training will focus on wind power and the future of offshore wind.
