Teaching Fellow for Explore Engineering Innovation: In-Person

Website John Hopkins Writing School of Engineering

Explore Engineering Innovation (EEI) is a summer course for high school students who would like to learn more about engineering. EEI is administered by the Center for Educational Outreach in the Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The mission of the Center is to increase the number of youth pursuing STEM education and careers. Explore Engineering Innovation is designed to give students a significant understanding of engineering, allowing them to make informed college and career decisions.

We are looking for Teaching Fellows who understand, appreciate, and can apply an instructional style that emphasizes the process of problem-solving rather than memorizing material. The object is to engage students by getting them to think and participate rather than being lectured to. Each EEI class has a broad range of 16-24 students with diverse backgrounds and Instructors must be prepared to accommodate a multitude of learning styles. Finally, the Teaching Fellow must be able to engage, encourage and excite the students.

Qualified candidates will have a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in a science, technology, engineering or math discipline, 3+ years of experience as a high school teacher in a STEM discipline, excellent classroom management skills, and knowledge of Algebra II and Trigonometry. Candidates with degrees in engineering are especially encouraged to apply. It should be noted that each EEI class is taught by a team comprised of a Teaching Fellow and an Instructor who is a PhD-level engineer with college teaching experience. The Instructor is the lead teacher when it comes to delivering course content.
