The CDC Science Ambassador program offers dynamic educational development opportunities and resources to help STEM teachers and other educators bring public health sciences into middle- and high-school classrooms. The one-year distance-learning fellowship focuses on applying curriculum development strategies and skills based on CDC NERD Academy—an innovative, standards-based public health STEM curriculum that empowers students to apply STEM concepts, make informed health decisions, and pursue public health careers. In addition to the fellowship, the program offers two-day regional training workshops throughout the United States and a variety of topical STEM lesson plans.
