NEED: K-6 After School STEM Instructors

The MTU Center for Science & Environmental Outreach provides after school STEM classes for students at Baraga Elementary and CJ Sullivan Elementary School (L’Anse). Classes are once per week for one hour between 4-6 pm. They may be virtual or in-person. The Center has lots of lessons already to go that an instructor just has to organize supplies for. Classes begin week of Sept. 13

The Center also conducts 1.5-2 hour science field trips during the school day for K-8 classes, which usually take place at their schools. There are already lessons prepared and supply kits ready to go. You can choose times to fit your schedule.

You must have your own car.  If you’re interested, please complete this online application

Feel free to contact Joan Chadde (jchadde@mtu.edu) with any questions. The supply kits are stored in the forestry building, rather than GLRC, for easy access. We would have a short training with all interested instructors first.

Internships – Michigan STEM Forward

Ann Arbor SPARK and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) are launching Michigan STEM Forward, a statewide program that matches students attending Michigan colleges and universities with internship opportunities at the state’s leading innovative companies. Companies do not have to be in a specific industry, but all internships must be STEM-focused. Michigan STEM Forward provides students meaningful career experience and promotes job retention in the state, while providing financial support to companies who hire these interns.

Based on Ann Arbor SPARK’s successful internship match program, the state tapped the regional economic development organization to steer the new statewide initiative, working with regional SmartZone service organizations to connect companies with interested students.

“Ann Arbor SPARK is thrilled to leverage our decade of experience running our own Ann Arbor-based internship program and take the opportunity to administer the Michigan STEM Forward program on behalf of the state. We have a solid track record of delivering results that help both businesses and job seekers: Of the students that participated in our internship program over the last five years, 84 percent of them accepted jobs in Michigan upon graduation,” said Bill Mayer, Ann Arbor SPARK’s vice president of entrepreneurial services. “It’s vital that we not only attract talent to Michigan, but retain aspiring jobseekers post-graduation as a strategy to extend the pipeline of workers available to growing companies.”

The program will place 425-450 STEM students currently attending Michigan colleges annually into STEM-focused internships throughout Michigan.


DTE: Co-op

Assignment will include:

·         Processing of turnover documentation and engineering drawing reviews

·         Validation of metadata for completeness and accuracy

·         Working with Document Management for digital file storage

Work location – virtual, but will have occasional site access ability

Students can apply through this link: Student Co-Op – Southeast Michigan (dteenergy.com)
