Want to jumpstart your teaching skills with a research experience? And get paid for it, too?
Now’s your chance! Each summer, the University of Kansas offers a 6-week research experience for high school science teachers and college students training to become teachers.
The program is called “Shaping Inquiry from Feedstock to Tailpipe,” or SHIFT, and is funded by the National Science Foundation. Dozens of teachers and undergraduates have participated in the program. Each participant receives a stipend and other benefits, such as new classroom supplies. Click here to learn more.
