We are seeking to hire a group of paid Interns who will work together to develop and deliver curriculum for two different academic summer programs: 1) Summer Multicultural Engineering Training Program (SUMMET, for high school students, http://www.mines.edu/summet) and 2) Summer Academic-Focused Education (SAFE, for middle school students). Each of these programs will be active, project-based design experiences with an end goal. The end goal drives the motivation for and engagement in subjects such as trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, geology, computer science, or physics, along with basic to advanced engineering concepts. The overall mission of these programs are to spark interest in STEM in underrepresented groups, empower students to pursue their passions and see STEM as a possible career choice, and demonstrate that they belong and can succeed at a competitive college like Mines.

During the spring, the Interns will work about 5 hours per week to research and develop the curriculum. They will meet once every two weeks with faculty coaches to learn about pedagogy and get feedback on the curriculum they are designing. In the summer, the Interns will have 8-10 total weeks of full time work to finish preparing the curriculum, run the programs (6 weeks of actual teaching), and reflect on lessons learned. Coaches will also be available during this time, but the Interns are primarily in charge


Enthusiasm is required, but prior teaching experience is not! Application details will be announced in November 2017
