Amgen is extending its application deadline for the 2010 Amgen Award for Science Teaching Excellence (AASTE). The award is designed to recognize and honor extraordinary science teachers at the K-12 level in communities where Amgen operates, including Massachusetts. Last year, four (4) teachers from schools in Massachusetts were AASTE recipients.
The selected winners will receive the following benefits: An unrestricted cash award of $5,000USD and a restricted $5,000USD cash grant to the recipient’s school for the expansion or enhancement of a school science program, science resources, or the professional development of the school’s science teachers.
