Thank you for your interest in the Science Coaches program!
Please complete the form below to apply for the 2023–2024 school year.
In order to be eligible to participate you must be a current K–12 teacher of chemistry based in the US. This includes:
  • K–5 teachers of science;
  • 6–8 teachers of physical science;
  • 9–12 teachers of chemistry.
If you have a coach in mind, please enter the name and email address they will use in their application when asked for your coach's information. You may not share finances with your coach partner. For more details about the program requirements and benefits, please visit the Science Coaches website.

Important Dates
  • Phase 1: Applications are open. Applications received by June 1 will be reviewed, and selected partnerships will be notified in July. If you do not hear from us in July, we will try to find you a partner in Phase 2.
  • Phase 2: The final deadline is September 1. If you are not matched in Phase 1, or if you apply after June 1, we will review your application and will notify you of your status by October 2.
  • Note: Applicants are not guaranteed program participation.
Application Timeline
This program has a two-phase application and program acceptance timeline. Other than being able to start your partnership earlier in the year, there is no difference, whether you are notified in Phase 1 or Phase 2, to program benefits or requirements. All successful teacher applicants, regardless of when they receive notification, will receive their $550 Flinn Scientific gift certificate in December 2023.
