The Robert C. Noyce Scholarship Program nationally was created to respond to the critical shortage of K-12 teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The program seeks to encourage talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in our nation's schools.
Here at Wittenberg, a grant was received in the Fall of 2010, to encourage math and science majors to pursue a career at the secondary level in high-need school districts. Our program is entitled: "Preparing Talented STEM Majors to Serve in High Need Secondary Schools." The intent is to sponsor 16 awards over a five-year period averaging $25,000 per year to be awarded to juniors and seniors. Read more about the history of Wittenberg and the Noyce Grant at this link.
Accredited licensure programs for the following subject areas are available at Wittenberg. Links to our departments are included.
In Ohio, these subject areas correlate to the following Adolescent-Young Adult (7-12) licensure areas. Links below present the courses necessary to complete for Wittenberg's approved teacher licensure program in each of the fields.

Noyce Spring Colloquium 2015
On March 25th, 2015 the Noyce community gathered together for another great colloquium. A speaker from the Neag School of Education in Connecticut named Dr. D.Todd Campbell. He spoke on the topic of factors influencing science education. He had discussion and then a simulation that participants were able to do on their computer. Scholars, professors, and mentors used the simulation to talk about the change in growth of plant life. Dr. Campbell continued to engage in how this could be integrated into classroom curriculum. Further discussion followed at dinner after the colloquium with Dr. Campbell and the Science concentrated Noyce Scholars.There were approximately 30 people in attendance.
