We're currently recruiting two new team members! We're looking for an experience science education/informal learning professional to lead our growing Science Club programs and an editorial assistant to support our center through marketing and communications.

The Senior Program Coordinator for Science Club will manage impactful, long-term afterschool programs (and staff) at multiple sites, spearheading key partnerships and community relationships and coordinating logistics for over 150 Science Club members and volunteers each year. Program management, staff leadership and science/science education experience are essential.

The part-time Editorial/Communications Assistant will be responsible for developing and delivering news pieces, communications, and media for a range of stakeholders and the general public. As a writer, s/ he will help share the meaningful stories of our center. As a communications professional, s/he will create and disseminate information about our work across a range of formats as well as support the production of our online magazine. (There will also be some opportunities to write feature articles with bylines.)

Both positions are currently open. More details can be found in the links above. Please help us spread the word! 

We'd also like to officially welcome the seven new team members who joined Science in Society already this fall! Ashley Jennings joined the Science Club team at the start of the school year. Ashley manages the TrueValue Science Club, working with mentors from several Chicago institutions and a great group of kids in Little Village.

Jen Lewin recently came on board to support the development of a new Northwestern-District 65 partnership, built to support university connections with the local Evanston K-8 students and teachers, both in and out of school and with a particular focus on underserved student populations. Read more about this new initiative and EvanSTEM in Evanston Now and the Evanston Roundtable.

We also now have five Science Education Fellows working at Mather High School. They'll be supporting freshman in the Science Explorers program through bi-weekly small group meetings throughout the school year to build confidence, school and study skills, and support science learning through individual tutoring and mentorship.

See the smiling faces of all our new team members on our About page, we're thrilled they're here!
