The second year of the program will include an expansion and roll-out to a larger cohort of Mather High School freshmen. In the 2016-2017 school year, students in the Science Explorers program will be supported by five full-time Science Education Fellows. These Fellows will be trained and supported by teachers and science education professionals from Northwestern’s center for science education and public engagement.
The Fellows support incoming freshmen through small group STEM tutoring and teaching and wider educational skills development and also provide in-class science learning support.
Science in Society is currently recruiting Fellows. Further information about the role and the project can be found on the Science Explorers website: scienceexplorers.org.
Applications close April 29.
