BP is sponsoring 3 international Global STEM Academies for a total of 100 international students. These 4-week summer programs in Chicago, Cairo and Brazil are offered in partnership with AFS Intercultural programs.
AFS-USA is looking to hire 2 educators who will deliver STEM program curriculum to the Chicago program. The student group consists of 30+ scholarship students, ages 15-17, from countries like Egypt, South Africa, Germany, China, India, Mexico, Brazil, etc. The program design has classes in the morning from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., and students will have related hands-on type activities and excursions with Program Counselors in the afternoons and evenings to reinforce and give additional exposure to the STEM topics.
Teachers will facilitate two morning classes (9 a.m. -10:25 a.m. and 10:35 a.m. -12 noon) each with approximately 15 students. Scholarship winners are expected to have a medium to high level of English comprehension and will all be non-native participants.
The themes of each week are:
Week 1: Architecture and Engineering
Week 2: The Energy Challenge
Week 3: Landscape Architecture & Art
Week 4: The Energy Challenge, Part 2
Teachers should be able to design curriculum for these topics. Once engaged, teachers will work closely with me to further develop the overall program content and to meld the classwork with the afternoon and evening program.
