2015 Science Ambassador.

The workshop takes place
July 20 - 24, 2015.

The CDC Science Ambassador Workshop is a 5-day professional development workshop for selected middle and high school science and math teachers (and possibly other educators) at CDC headquarters in Atlanta. There is no charge for this workshop but participants will cover their own transportation, lodging, and meals.

During the workshop

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend seminars on current public health topics presented by CDC scientists
  • Collaborate with CDC scientists to develop challenging and innovative public health-based lesson plans that meet National Science Education Standards. Completed lesson plans are submitted to the CDC Science Ambassador staff to review.
  • Enhance your professional network of educators and public health professionals
  • Tour CDC's state-of-the-art headquarters, including the Emergency Operations Center and the David J. Sencer CDC Museum
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is authorized by IACET to offer 4.0 CEU's for this program.

After the workshop

After review and editing, lesson plans are posted on the CDC Science Ambassador website. Participants are encouraged to use Science Ambassador lesson plans and other public health examples in their teaching and continue as a CDC Science Ambassador.
