K-12 Teachers

  • Virtual Camp Team Leaders – Learning Experience for Teachers (LET)

We are very pleased to offer the following summer staff position for ALL elementary, middle and high school teachers. As an LET participant, you will be learning and leading activities focused on introducing children to engineering concepts.  It is a fun, collaborative environment where teacher participants apply what they learn about engineering in a sustained informal-educational setting. Teachers will assist the program by offering feedback and ideas while supervising approximately 12 (elementary or middle school)  or 24 (high school) students, providing mentoring, team facilitation and behavior management, while collaborating with other team leads, undergrad counselors and high school assistant counselors.

The engineering education skills learned and practiced will be a tremendous asset in the future for engaging students in more traditional classroom settings and for developing various STEM-integrated academic lesson plans. Applicants should be interested in learning how to use engineering problem-solving methodology to facilitate academic connections in their classrooms. They should be highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals, interested in hands-on activities, and able to work well with peers and children.

Stipend Rates are $16/hr for time spent in the camps and in training. We are not limiting teachers to selecting camps based solely on the grade levels that they currently teach.
