NDSU has been awarded funds from the North Dakota Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Initiative, which was instituted by the North Dakota Legislature to provide funds for K-12 education enrichment programs in STEM disciplines.
Part of the funds will be used to support STEM graduate students who will be placed in area schools to work directly with middle and high school teachers on implementing engineering-centered curriculum modules in their classrooms.
Students will work 20 hours per week. Requirements include excellent verbal and written communication skills and willingness to work directly with young students. Familiarity with middle and high school STEM curriculum also is preferred.
Applications are being sought for STEM graduate students to fill these positions, which will begin January 2010. Contact Kim McVicar at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-7336 for an application.
