Impact on Recruiting Science, Math and Engineering Students into Teaching

The option of teaching in the nation's schools is seldom presented to declared majors in the scientific disciplines or math. Most students who seek secondary science or math teaching certification do so late in their undergraduate careers, or return to school after graduation. STEMTEC will help them to make the connection earlier by modifying introductory and upper-division courses as well as offering teaching experiences. Also, the colleges have special tracks and programs for talented students (Honors Program, Talent Advancement Program) which we will target for special recruitment. The goal is to ensure that the brightest students interested in the these areas know the opportunities and rewards of teaching.
