BOZEMAN – Applications are now being accepted for Montana State University’s Science Horizons Initiative, a free multi-day workshop for middle and high school science teachers from schools on Native American reservations in Montana or for teachers who work in schools serving Native American populations. The program provides MSU and peer support so teachers can develop their “dream” science education idea, plus travel funds, room and board and classroom supplies.

Science Horizons is held June 20-23 on the MSU campus. The application deadline is Monday, May 2.

Science Horizons was developed and is run by MSU chemistry professor Bill McLaughlin, who, in January 2015, earned MSU’s outreach award for his work on Science Horizons and other programs.

Science Horizons is sponsored by the Montana Space Grant Consortium, the MSU College of Letters and Science's Dean’s Office, MSU President’s Office, MSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Department of Energy’s MSU-based BETCy Energy Frontier Research Center and the National Science Foundation’s Synthetic Symbiosis Project, also based at MSU. Additional supporters include the Department of Native American Studies and MSU Extended University.
