Over the course of 2016, Science in Society has been extending and developing several community-focused partnerships in Evanston. As always, our work is firmly grounded in supporting underserved communities with high-quality, impactful STEM opportunities, and these new initiatives are no exception.
Graduate students and post docs (and even faculty and staff) can have the best intentions. We constantly meet motivated scholars looking to give back to the community but they’re not sure where to start.
If you’re interested in developing your science communication, teaching, leadership, or mentorship skills, stop by one of our drop-in info sessions to hear about projects with which you can get involved.
Science in Society is currently recruiting a new team member to support and lead the growing K-8 STEM Education community in Evanston.
The District 65/Northwestern University Partnership Coordinator will serve as a liaison between NU and the Curriculum and Instruction Department in Evanston/Skokie School District 65. The Coordinator will develop and foster a network that connects Northwestern talent and resources with teachers and K-8 students in District 65.
