The Education and Outreach department at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), on the campus of UC San Diego, is offering qualified secondary school educators part-time summer employment in a fun and cooperative environment in one of its premier student programs. For the past ten years, SDSC has been successfully offering weeklong summer programs to students in grades 6- 12 through its StudentTECH program (http://education.sdsc.edu/studenttech). Each summer, over 300 campers attend a variety of technology-based programs on topics as varied as physics, robotics, ocean science, computer programming, video production, computers and music and more. With a loyal following of students and parents, it is important to keep our summer programs fresh and dynamic.
Successful candidates must possess a valid teaching credential with the San Diego County Office of Education. A credential to teach computer science is highly sought. STEM subjects are of particular interest, with a strong focus on technology integration within the chosen subject matter, such as physics, biology, computer programming, mathematics and the arts.
Educators will have the opportunity to teach their grade level of choice and will be able to suggest possible course topics for the chosen grade level. Selected educators will work with the StudentTECH program coordinator to define and refine proposed curriculum to meet program goals.
Successful candidates will work with a class size not to exceed 21, and in some cases, may request a smaller class size. One UCSD undergraduate student and two volunteer high school students will work with the workshop instructor to provide technical support and student assistance.
Successful candidates will be hired as UCSD employees on a one-year, at-will contract. UCSD background checks will be required as a condition of employment.
