About

Our STEM program is focused on Conservation and Environmental Science and preparing young children to become scientific leaders that can solve complex twenty-first century problems using project-based learning approaches. Through our existing relationship with the scientific community, our educational roots, and our flexibility, Tallahassee Museum’s STEM program will bridge the gap that prevents scientists from achieving broader impacts in K-12 schools.

Our ideal teachers will be very communicative, inquisitive, comfortable with the use of technology, good at backwards planning, open to feedback, and good with structure & continuity. A background in STEM is not a requirement, but we do need teachers to be dependable, available after 2pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays, motivated to learn about Conservation and Environmental Science, and able to pass a Level 2 Background Check. Volunteer-teachers will have frequent opportunities to learn from influential scientists and engineers in the community to refresh their own knowledge, be trained to help young children grapple with complex thoughts, and will be engaged in collaborative data-driven processes that are crucial to improving student learning.

This volunteer position requires at least six hours a week for a minimum six month commitment, and participation in a monthly professional development session that will be held on a Saturday or Sunday.
