1,000 Scientists in 1,000 Days

Scientific American magazine launched an initiative earlier this year to connect K-12 classroom teachers to STEM professionals around the country:

What if [teachers] could invite researchers into the classroom to lead a lab exercise with students, to inspire kids about what being a scientist is really like, or to update them about the latest findings in their field?

That was the inspiration behind 1,000 Scientists in 1,000 Days, a Scientific American program that helps to connect teachers and scientists. We launched the sign-up component of the program in May, and more than 1,100 scientists, from all around the U.S., already have signed up to volunteer.
