An Evening with Simon Hauger - A Huge Success!                                                                   Noyce Scholars from Bryn Mawr joined Noyce Scholars from other area colleges and universities, in-service teachers, Bryn Mawr students and faculty and members of the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership in welcoming Simon Hauger to the Bryn Mawr Campus.  Simon, an engineer turned award-winning urban teacher, shared his experience with project-based learning, his success with the founding and development of the Hybrid X team and his new, innovative project, the Workshop School in Philadelphia.  The Hybrid X team, a group of high school students, won national and international competitions for building cars that were able to get 100 miles per gallon, beating out large corporate and university teams. The Workshop School is completely problem-based, encouraging students to solve the most pressing world problems.  This exciting evening was hosted by Professor Donnay's EDUC 220 class, Changing Pedagogies in Math and Science and the Philadelphia Regional Noyce Partnership.  Professor's Donnay's class is seen below.  Sandra Melo and Tasnim Aziz, Noyce Scholars, are seen in the picture with their classmates, Professor Donnay and Simon Hauger in the center.  Hauger Event

Bryn Mawr and Haverford
Noyce Math and Science Teacher Program

 

Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges have received a 5 year, $900,000 grant from the Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program of the National Science Foundation. Bryn Mawr and Haverford’s Noyce program aims to encourage math and science majors and alumni/ae to explore opportunities in math and science education and offers generous scholarships to students who are committed to the challenging social justice work of teaching math and science in high-needs secondary schools. As this is the final year of the scholarship, only seniors and alumnae/i can apply for a one-year scholarship.

We offer a 5th year only option for seniors and for alumnae/i with a scholarship of $35,000 for tuition and living expenses. Applicants MUST be able to complete the certification requirements in one year.  The application is due by:

Round I - Friday, November 29, 2013                                                            Round II - Friday, March 21, 2014.

Applicants are also eligible to apply for our 5th year Penn Master's Option.  For more information about this, click on the highlighted link.

Scholarship recipients must be U.S. citizens or nationals, or permanent resident aliens.

For each year of scholarship support, the Noyce Fellows will be expected to teach for    2 years in a high-needs school in the Greater Philadelphia region. If a Fellow does not fulfill his/her teaching obligation, then the scholarship becomes a loan that the Fellow is required to repay.

Bryn Mawr and Haverford Noyce Fellows will become part of a regional and national network of Noyce Fellows that will support and encourage the Fellows in their work and help them connect to broader movements for educational change. The seven institutions in the Philadelphia region that have Noyce programs (Bryn Mawr and Haverford, Drexel, La Salle, Penn, Temple, and Saint Joseph's) have received a NSF grant to develop joint programming for their Fellows.
