What do STEAM Teachers do? STEAM Teachers teach after school STEAM programs to groups of 20 elementary schoolers. They teach once every twoweeks with two other high school teachers, from September to May. They teach from the STEAM Team curriculum that is given to them. This curriculum applies creative learning to biology, engineering, technology, physics, artistic, and mathematical concepts. There are no educational (or other) prerequisites to be a teacher. We encourageany passionate highschoolstudentwho wants to make change in their community to join! Teaching for STEAM Team is an opportunity for you to help students in need who don't have the privilege of quality education and access to proper resources. This job will teach you leadership, public speaking, social and entrepreneurialskills, which will help you in all areas of life, including college applications and high school challenges. Community service hours are earned from teaching as well. Being a teacher is a challenging and rewarding responsibility to take on, and in addition is an impressive position to add to your resume.
What do STEAM Leaders do? STEAM High School Leaders help with behind the scenes operations. STEAM Leaders are true to their name - they lead the organization and are the brains behind it. STEAM Leaders help design the curriculum and constantly update it so it's in line with the ever-changing educational standards and teaching styles. They also spearhead different aspects of STEAM Team - such as being the president of high school STEAM Team clubs that fundraise for the organization, or starting a branch of it that runs locally in their community. This position is a way to get involved with the team remotely, without having to commute somewhere twice a month, if your schedule doesn't allow it. As always, STEAM is always looking for high school leaders to run the organization and provide new ideas. As a STEAM Leader, you'd pitch in new ideas on how to deliver STEAM education to everyone that needs it, and lead different projects under STEAM Team that could do so. (An example idea from a STEAM Leader: running a STEAM class once a month in a local library, following the same curriculum but for 3-5th graders instead) You'd also do any tasks your supervisor tells you to do (But not time consuming - you'd work in groups so that the work is evenly split up. We understand you're a high school student - we are too! The tasks are not given at specific time intervals, they're assigned based on what kind of help we need at what moment). Tasks might include redesigning a few experiments from the curriculum, or reaching out to a local elementary school, or helping design new T-Shirts. There are no prerequisites for becoming a STEAM Leader - only that you have a bright mind full of creative ideas and ways to contribute! We're always open to ideas and new students willing to help.
