As part of the American Chemical Society (ACS) fall meeting in Boston later this month, the K-12 education division will host a two-day HS chemistry teacher’s program August 16-17. The program includes workshops, resource sharing, and networking specifically designed for HS teachers. The American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT) is looking for a chemistry teacher attendee to serve as our social media correspondent. The purpose of the AACT social media correspondent is to share learning experiences and insight about the days’ programs and takeaways with teachers in the ACCT community who couldn’t attend the live program. The correspondent would be responsible for attending both days (August 16-17) of HS day programming while sharing the events of the days via live social media tweets & posts. Post-meeting they would be responsible for writing a post for the AACT blog which summarizes their experience at the event.
As compensation, AACT will cover the $100 registration fee plus $50 (for current AACT members), -or- cover the $100 registration fee and provide a free AACT membership for nonmembers.
What we’re looking for:
+A current AACT HS teacher member -or- HS chemistry teacher interested in becoming an AACT member
+A currently active Twitter & Facebook user; comfortable using hashtags, attaching images, and using features of both social media platforms.
