I am the director of a program called Math Science Upward
Bound. We are a new program this year. We work with students
from low-income families whose parents do not have a college
degree. We work to strengthen academic skills and motivation so
these students, who have the interest and the aptitude, can get
into college. These are achievers who just need some support (our
students MUST maintain a B- GPA to stay in the program).
Anyway, we have a great program designed but I need two
more teachers, a math teacher and a physics teacher. Students
will work in small groups (5 students/group) to build life-size paddle
boats. The physics and the math will teach the necessary
concepts to design and build these boats.
Please help me find two faculty members willing to be a part of
this program. We are being very flexible about the time
commitment, job-sharing, etc. The program begins June 26th with
classes starting June 29th. Classes run Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday mornings through August 1st. The students
will display and race their paddle boats on Thursday August 3rd.
Currently, the program is set up with 45 minute classes but
can be rearranged with "block scheduling" for the physics and
possibly even the math.
Let me know if you or anyone you know is interested in joining
