Teacher Team Application Form

  • Hello,

    Thank you for applying to the Scientist in Residence Program!

    Each application requires two teachers from the same school, ideally teaching the same grade or closely related grades, who will work in partnership with a scientist. This program is only offered to K-7 teachers in the Vancouver School District.

    Point form answers are fine!
    Feel free to contact us with any questions.

    Thank you,
    Lisa and Kathy

  • Teacher 1 (primary contact):

  • Teacher 2

  • 1. We need some help from the teachers who participate in our program. Please read the following, discuss with your principal and partner teacher, and decide if you can commit to:

    • Attending an orientation session in October.
    • Attending planning meetings with your partner teacher and scientist, scheduled throughout the year, as required.
    • Replying to emails in a timely manner (as few as possible, we promise!)
    • Co-delivering all SRP lessons and field trips with the scientist.
    • Reviewing the lesson plan write-ups for our website (written by the scientist) and providing your feedback.
    • Possibly hosting a donor in your classroom, when and if it works for you and your students.
    • Completing a detailed evaluation and submitting it before May 31st. (We also appreciate receiving feedback and artwork from the students.)
    • Finally, your school may initially need to pay the $1000 for the program supplies and field trip costs. The school then completes an expense form (including all receipts), and submits the form by the end of May. Your school is fully reimbursed by the end of June.
  • 9. Please choose the science themes that you are interested in. Reference the list below or add your own ideas.
    (Science units will have one or two overarching themes.)
