Middle School Educators

Invite a scientist to your classroom!

Radiah Minor at Thomasville Middle

The North Carolina Science Festival recruits dynamic and dedicated scientists and STEM experts to share their excitement about science with students in middle school classes. These talented scientists and experts are selected to mirror the diversity of our state and are available to visit North Carolina schools through the Novozymes SciMatch program. The goal of each visit is to inspire students to consider science as a career and to understand how science impacts our lives.
