Having college students teach will serve three purposes. It will improve their own understanding of the material and the learning process, it will expose them to the possibility of teaching as a career, and it will represent a service to the community. STEMTEC is especially interested in using teaching experiences as a way to recruit science and math majors into teaching at all grade levels. In addition to stand-alone activities, teaching opportunities can be incorporated into regular college science, engineering, and math courses. Ways to create these opportunities will be explored in the Summer Institute discussed in the next section.
