THOMAS A. GARDNER
SCIENCE TEACHER ENDOWMENT FUND

The Thomas A. Gardner Science Teacher Endowment Fund is created to support and advance the learning of science and of nature by children and by the public at large, and the application of science understanding to the hazards of modern society.

The activities of the Fund will include, but are not limited to: The annual Thomas A. Gardner Science Teacher Award to be given to a candidate who is certified or graduated as a Queens College science teacher in the Science Teacher Careers Program. The award is presented at the Queens College graduation ceremony in Spring of each year.

The recipient is expected to demonstrate:
• a deep desire to continue his/her development as a creative and effective
  teacher,
• a love of nature and living things and a desire to teach this to others, and
• a desire to increase science understanding of the public, especially with regards
  to the hazards of modern society.

The recipient will receive a certificate of recognition at the Queens College graduation ceremonies and a tuition scholarship of $1000 designated exclusively for their graduate studies in teacher education at Queens College.

The Thomas A. Gardner Science Teacher Award was given for the first time at the June 2002 graduation to Maureen G. Smatana, a Biology teacher graduate of the Division of Education and the Science Teacher Careers program.
