Northrop Supporting STEM Program for Middle, High School Teachers

Northrop Grumman and Conservation International have launched a professional development program for science teachers in public middle and high schools, Northrop announced Thursday.

Northrop said the ECO Classroom program will help teachers inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

A group of teachers will be selected to travel La Selva Biological and Braulio Carrillo National Park in Costa Rica in July. The teachers will collect biodiversity and climate data with the Conservation International’s Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring Network.

Northrop said the goal is to have teachers use the information gained on trip in their classroom in order to promote science-related careers.

The deadline for applications to the program is March 15.
