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.
