Terra Science and Education created the Terra STEM Scholars in Schools Program to connect STEM experts with schools in their areas.
The goal is to increase STEM engagement in schools by helping teachers to identify the experts in their region and to find educational community service opportunities for STEM experts. Terra will offer this service free for both schools and STEM experts so that it can take off the stress on finding a good match and scheduling.
Terra will provide annual reports to the companies or universities if they announce our program and allow their employees to volunteer. The report may include how many of their employees are involved and how many hours of community service is provided by their employees. You may use the information for your annual company reports, community impact reports, or grant submissions.
The Terra STEM Scholars are local college faculty, STEM practitioners, and graduate students who are eager to interact with school students and their teachers. Scholars can share their expertise through interactive lectures, classroom activities, field experiences, tours, or job shadowing. Extended mentoring opportunities can also be explored in select cases.
School Name, Age/Grade level, STEM area of interest, possible specific topics (if there is), month of the year when the Scholar is expected, and any other related information to help the Scholar better prepare.
Scholars can expect one volunteer presentation per year which should serve as your community service. For additional visit requests in an academic year, the Scholar may choose to volunteer their time or Terra will pay them $75 per additional school visit. You may choose how many engagements you would like to do in a year. Terra will place you within 30 miles of your home or work address.
If you have further questions before making a commitment, please email Dr. Rick Beal ([email protected]).
