How to Apply
Are you interested in hosting a scientist in your classroom? The CASE GK-12 program brings science graduate students into K-12 classrooms for ~10 hours per week (5 if two teachers share a fellow) over the course of the school year. Graduate fellows teach scientific methods and concepts in many climate-science related areas, such as plant and animal adaptations, genetics, invasive species, global change, and others. We encourage teachers with a range of science expertise to apply, from novice to expert. A stipend is provided.
Information sessions will be held in March. We will be accepting teacher applications for the 2013-2014 school year on March 1, 2013. Click here to download an application. Completed applications should be submitted to Tiffany DeRuyter (email@example.com) no later than 5 PM, Friday, April 12, 2013.
UAF Science graduate students
Are you interested in enhancing your teaching skills? Do you want to learn more about communicating science to the public? We encourage you to think about becoming a CASE GK-12 graduate fellow. Fellows receive training in teaching methods and science communication, then go on to work in K-12 classrooms. Fellows are eligible for tuition waivers and a competitive 12-month stipend.
We are now accepting applications for graduate fellows for the 2013-2014 school year. Applications are due November 2nd. Click here for an application. Information sessions will be held on October 19, 2012 & October 25, 2012 in the Runcorn room of the Reichardt Building at UAF from 4:00-5:00.
