Center City chemical company FMC Corporation today announced a $100,000 partnership with the Franklin Institute and the Math + Science Coalition to offer training and resources to local STEM teachers.

The company is calling the program “Teaching the Science of Curiosity,” and there are two ways for teachers to participate:

  • Philadelphia Science Festival: The festival is hosting STEM teacher workshops and a “Teacher’s Lounge” on April 20 that will offer resources, a meet and greet with FMC Corporation scientists and a chance to win a class trip to FMC’s headquarters.
  • Summer Science Institute: More than 100 School District teachers can participate in free courses like Introduction to Chemistry, Astronomy, Landforms, Sound and Restless Earth. Teachers can sign up for these courses at the “Teacher’s Lounge” at the Science Festival.

This isn’t FMC’s first effort supporting STEM, said spokeswoman Barbara Del Duke. In the past year, the company, which manufactures products like insectides, soda ash and natural colorings for food, sponsored STEM Career Days at the Academy of Natural Sciences and increased the number of STEM college internships it provided.
