STEM Camp Teacher
SEATTLE ADVOCATES FOR EDUCATION
We are looking for current high school students to be instructors for our STEM Exploration Club! STEM Exploration is designed to be a club that exposes middle school-age students to a broad survey of fields in STEM they are interested in. In a small group community, learning at STEM Exploration is interactive , engaging , and intellectually stimulating . Combined with hearing from and talking with professionals who work in various fields of STEM, the goal of STEM Exploration is to develop a passion in students for STEM and inspire them to continue learning about STEM.
The Nuts and Bolts
Each STEM topic will be taught over 4-5 week chunks. In the first 2-3 weeks, students will learn about the topic’s content and in the next 1-2 weeks, students will work on an extension project in that field of STEM under the guidance of that STEM field’s teacher.
Note: This year, the club will be online.
Content Instructors (part-time)
- A general guide:
- Week 1: Introduce subject with some background/history, teach some basic concepts (1.5 hours)
- Week 2: Continue with basic concepts (0.75 hours), teach an interactive lab that the students can do at home (0.75 hours)
- Week 3: Continue with lab and teaching as you see fit. During this week there most likely will be a guest speaker.
- The topic should be specific enough to sufficiently teach in 2-3 weeks (for example, don’t teach 'Biology’, teach 'Theory of Evolution’ or 'Microbiology’ etc.)
- Assign optional homework each week - should be enrichment material that isn’t necessary for the in-class curriculum
