1,000 Scientists in 1,000 Days, a program that Scientific American is now launching as part of its Change the Equation initiatives with our parent, aims to support efforts to improve teaching in math and science by targeting early childhood education, the public-school curriculum for both, and by supporting teacher training in crucial subjects. The program seeks scientists who are willing to volunteer to advise on curricula, answer a classroom’s questions, or visit a school—for instance, to do a lab or to talk about what you do. How much you choose to participate will be up to you. Go here for a description and links.
