CA-STEM Graduate Fellows

CA-STEM fellows are chosen from Colorado School of Mines graduate departments based on their interest in improving the science and math learning experiences for K-12 students and any previous tutoring or teaching experiences they have.

 After attending the two-week summer workshop where they meet with participating K-12 teachers and Mines faculty to develop age-appropriate, stimulating, fun lesson plans and activities for students, they spend 15-20 hours per week during the school year assisting the teachers in their classrooms. Fellows also provide STEM outreach activities for science nights and science fairs in their teachers’ schools. In addition, they design and construct science and math projects for other K-12 STEM forums in the Denver area.

The fellows develop the curriculum for and teach our middle school summer Discover STEM Camps held on campus, as well as develop and present a science program for the Rocky Mountain Dyslexic Camp held in Indian Hills, CO, each summer.

Fellows receive support in the form of tuition, stipend and fees.

Many fellows have written papers on their teaching research activities and have presented at the annual conferences for the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and Frontiers in Education (FIE).
