Astellas understands that the future of innovation lies in our children and that
a child's interest in science is sparked in the classroom. We also recognizes that
America's science teachers are key in igniting this spark and that it's their commitment
that compels a child's desire to pursue their interest further. In fact, many of
our own employees attribute their passion for science to dedicated science educators.
To help address an unmet need among science teachers and their students, Astellas
created Science WoRx, a local mentoring program and online resource network
for science teachers. The program seeks to increase understanding of the role that
science plays in human health and medicine. Above all, we created Science WoRx to
inspire the next generation of scientists and support science teachers both in the
classroom and beyond.
