  • The ASRT program is designed to equip high school teachers with the knowledge, insights and activities to increase science research opportunities for their students.

  • The program can be customized to help high school teachers that provide science/STEM research opportunities within a traditional STEM classroom setting or helping those with small, growing dedicated research programs/clubs, or even helping those with more established Science/STEM Research Programs/Clubs.

  • Whether a high school teacher runs an established Science/STEM Research Program/Club or incorporates science/STEM research project opportunities into their science curriculum, they are eligible to apply. However, they do have to be an active high school teacher. High school teachers may apply individually or as a group.

  • In some cases, science fair directors have applied on behalf of a larger group of high school teachers (up to 20), that are involved in their local or regional science fairs. In those cases, the science fair director would be responsible for organizing the group and providing a location for the ASRT workshop in their region, should they be selected.

  • Potential ASRT workshop dates can be found in the "FAQ" section of this website and on the application.

  • The ASRT Program is being offered for free thanks to funding from Regeneron and ZEISS

  • Applicants will be evaluated by a committee from Regeneron and/or ZEISS, on the basis of their interest in building and/or growing such a program, readiness and capacity in terms of finances and faculty, as well as their administration’s level of support for creating science/STEM research opportunities for high school students.

  • An email will be sent to all Regeneron-ISEF affiliated fair directors with an invitation to apply as well as a request to pass the information and application link along to all of the high school teachers that have been or want to be, involved in their science fair.
