The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Noyce Scholarship Program end June 30, 2017. We will be offering our final Internship experience this year. This paid internship will be for two weeks and science and math majors or those interested in exploring teaching in science or math at the secondary level in high need schools are welcome to apply. If you are interested, please come to an information session on Wednesday, March 29, 2017. This session will be held at 6:00 pm in Park Science, Room 328. Pizza and cupcakes will be served! See flyer here.
Are you a Bryn Mawr or Haverford freshman, sophomore or junior who would like to explore the possibility of becoming a secondary math or science teacher? Are you interested in the connections between teaching and youth development, social justice, or social change? Do you want to experience school again, from a new vantage point as a professional?
If so, apply for the Noyce Math and Science Education Internship Program! Successful applicants will spend the two week from May 15 - May 26, 2017 learning about math and science education by shadowing a math or science teacher in a Philadelphia classroom. If you find this a positive experience, talk with the Bryn Mawr Education Program Coordinator about how you can continue to be part of this exciting career path.
The specifics of the student – host teacher match will be worked out based on interests and availability. Two interns will be placed in the same school so that they can travel together to their placement.
Due to funding rules, the Noyce Internship is not usually available to international students. We have, however, secured funding from LILAC to fund one international student in 2017.
As part of the Internship experience, participants will create a portfolio of reflections focused on their experience. This portfolio will contribute to an understanding of math/science education, approaches to teaching, and how the experience enhanced the students academic, personal and professional goals. The intern’s particular interests will inform the design of the portfolio. In addition to the reflective journal/portfolio, students must develop 4 slides that detail their learning from and their contribution to the placement. Details will be shared at the Internship Orientation. To view examples of two interns reflective journals, please click here.
As part of the requirements of the Noyce Internship Program, participants must attend an orientation session, two designated workshops during the internship period and a debriefing session at the end of the two weeks. The Reflective Portfolio and any other assignments will be discussed at the orientation.
Noyce Interns will receive a stipend of $400 per week, on-campus housing in one of the dorms at Bryn Mawr, and a food and transportation allowance.
