The Academic‐Year Institutes Program of the National Science Foundation will be continued in 1961–62 with the participation of 43 colleges and universities. The program was started five years ago with the aim of helping science teachers improve their subject‐matter knowledge through a year's advanced study on a full‐time basis, with emphasis placed on the newer developments in science and mathematics. Approximately 1500 secondary‐school science teachers and 75 teachers from liberal arts colleges, teachers colleges, and junior colleges will attend the institutes next year. College teachers participating in the program will be chosen from among those who are primarily responsible for the training of prospective science and mathematics teachers in their own institutions.
