Good Afternoon, UTC!
The TRIO Upward Bound Math Science program has a summer opportunity for anyone interested in leading a STEM research project/class with high school students!
UBMS hosts a residential summer program for low-income, first-generation, college-bound high school students. During this program, students participate in academic classes, Monday-Thursday during the month of June. These classes focus on enrichment, rather than remediation. We are looking for staff, who can introduce STEM concepts to high school students, through activities that pique their interests and give them deeper insights into what “STEM” consists of. In the past UBMS has hired UTC and Chattanooga State Faculty and staff, HCDE Teachers, UTC Graduate Assistants, and Community STEM Professionals to engage our students in such STEM activities.
Our goal is to provide students with dynamic and engaging, hands-on STEM activities, that can incorporate multiple aspects of STEM, in ways that may not be available to them in their schools. These projects/classes can last for 2 weeks or 4 weeks. Teaching/Leading the project/class is a paid position with UBMS. Project/Class materials will also be provided by UBMS.
We have created a form, so you can tell us a little about yourself, and about a project/class you would like to teach or lead! Please, complete the following form so we can contact you and further discuss this summer opportunity:
