Do you believe in the learning potential of the young child? Are you an experienced teacher with a strong science and outdoor education background? This might be the right place for you.
What is Science Explorers Outreach? Teachers guide children through variety a science-based programs throughout the school year. We have been successfully operating the Science Explorers program for 7 years and will be growing the program with the addition of outreach programming.
Science Explorer Outreach programs meet Tuesday-Friday mornings. Teachers will be traveling to locations other than da Vinci. Class schedule and number of classes per day will be the same for the entire school year.
Qualifications: Applicants should have a degree or should be working towards a degree in a field related to education, child development or science. This could include special education or similar field of study. Exceptional experience will be considered with an unrelated degree. Experience in science and outdoor education is preferred. Excellent communication skills, flexible teaching style, and an enthusiastic approach are also required.
What to Expect: Our Science Explorers curriculum is a hands-on thematic activities approach to science. The instructor guides the group through a rotation of stations that changes every two weeks and is unique to that week’s topic. Knowledge and experience with this age level are helpful.
