Educator Opportunities

Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS)

USAMRMC has opportunities for Resource teachers for the summer during our Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS) program.

The GEMS program is an extracurricular science education program, which enables students to experience science in a real laboratory setting. The program is based on a multi-disciplinary educational curriculum, and is focused on age- and grade-appropriate hands-on activities, in areas such as science, engineering, mathematics, computational sciences, computational biology, biomedical sciences, chemistry and biology.

Typically a Resource Teacher would be a licensed teacher within the public school/state system that currently teaches middle or high school students in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. However, other professions are encouraged to apply. Ideally the candidate would have experience in a supervising role.

The Resource Teacher would be responsible for daily supervision of the Near-Peer Mentors (College aged individuals that teach the student interns), students and the maintenance of the laboratory/classroom. The Resource Teacher would provide guidance on all experimental activities and would need to be present for the duration of the program as well as necessary time before and after the program. The Resource Teacher would also assist with curriculum as needed.
