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.
