Lead Instructor for Exploring Engineering (Grades 2-4)

Position Type: Part-time
Availability: Summer weekdays (and optional Fall/Spring weekends)
Ideal Candidates: Elementary school teachers

If you enjoy working with younger children, our Exploring Engineering classes are full of lots of fun, hands-on, science experiments and engineering design challenges that are always a blast. STEM specialists and elementary school science teachers are ideal candidates, though not mandatory. The most important factor is experience working with younger students.

Lead Instructor for Techsploring (Grades 5-12)

Position Type: Part-time
Availability: Summer weekdays (and optional Fall/Spring weekends)
Ideal Candidates: Middle school and high school teachers

Our upper-level courses are more technically-advanced and require more training to master the material, but if building a line-following robot from scratch or taking apart an engine and putting it back together again sounds like a good time, you are the kind of instructor we are looking for! Experienced middle and high school teachers are ideal candidates, though not mandatory.

In-School Field Trip Instructor

Position Type: Part-time
Availability: Fall/Spring weekdays
Ideal Candidates: Retired teachers or stay-at-home parents

In-school field trips involve going into local schools to do short a short activity that takes the place of the regularly scheduled science class that day. This can be a great part-time job for a stay-at-home parent or retiree. A technical background and/or experience working with children is ideal but not mandatory (these short activities are not very technically challenging and can be easily mastered).

Assistant Instructors

Position Type: Part-time or Volunteer
Availability: Summer weekdays (and optional Fall/Spring weekends)
Ideal Candidates: Engineering and Education majors

Strengthen your technical skills while sharing your passion with the younger generation following in your footsteps. The ideal candidates have lots of hands-on practical experience: working on your own car, tinkering projects, robotics programs, Eagle Scouts, etc. Prior experience working with children is preferred but not mandatory. You must be enthusiastic with a positive attitude and a passion for engineering that you can share with the younger kids who look up to you as a role model. During class you will be assigned a small group of 4 to 6 students who you help guide through the process of building their projects.

High School Internships

Position Type: Volunteer
Availability: Summer weekdays (and optional Fall/Spring weekends)
Ideal Candidates: Previous Techsplorers students

These positions are reserved for students who have prior experience taking Techsplorers classes with the knowledge and ability to help current students. Exceptions can be made if the candidate can demonstrate sufficient technical ability. A Summer internship with Techsplorers will hone your skills and give you valuable relevant experience to put on your college application.
