New Science Teacher Academy

New Science Teacher Academy The NSTA New Science Teacher Academy, co-founded by the Amgen Foundation, is a professional development initiative created to help promote quality science teachers.

Launched during the spring of 2007, the NSTA New Science Teacher Academy is a yearlong virtual program established to help reduce the high attrition rate in the science teaching profession by providing professional development and mentoring support to early career science teachers. Intended for science educators entering their second-fifth year of teaching, the Academy is designed to help promote quality science teaching, enhance teacher confidence and classroom excellence, and improve teacher content knowledge.
