Job Description

QuantumCamp is looking for elementary school science teachers for leading in-school lab class at one of partner schools, Khan Lab School. We take science lab classes directly into the school and operate their entire lab science programming!

The program runs Fridays over the 2018-2019 academic year from 9:00 to noon. The QC team arrives for prep at about 8:30 am. An additional hour per week of curriculum study is also provided. 

In QC courses, students forge their own profound connection to our universe through carefully constructed lab sequences, which facilitate hands-on discoveries of amazing math and science ideas. 

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

  1. Learn and then teach QuantumCamp's hands-on science  curriculum at our partner school.
  2. Facilitate an engaging, inquiry-based science program, with experiments and projects that lead to a meaningful understanding of the world.

DESCRIPTION OF POSITION

  1. Teach classes of 10-25 students on Friday mornings during the academic year.
  2. Thoroughly prepare for and deliver amazing science labs

SUCCESSFUL APPLICANT ATTRIBUTES

  2. You are a passionate, energetic, patient, engaging instructor, who is highly organized and understand that the classroom environment has an impact on learning.
  3. You are continually seeking to design deeper and more meaningful educational experiences for students, and love sharing new ideas to support the intellectual growth of your students. 
  4. You are a scholar of science, passionate about the pedagogical theories of discovery-based learning, and are able to implement both into your teaching practice. 
  5. Your science acumen permits you to discuss and run experiments, like the photoelectric effect, which enables you to teach an experiment based course on the origin of the Bohr Model of the atom for middle schoolers
  6. You know 8, 9, and 10 year olds can and should be doing advanced experiments in Zoology, Botany, Electricity, and Chemistry
  7. You would like to facilitate an intuitive discovery of the laws of motion for 6 and 7 year olds.

REQUIRED EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE

  1. B.S./B.A. or higher in science, or education
  2. 1+ years experience working with groups of students between 1st grade and 8th grade, in either conventional or alternative education formats

Business Overview

Our Story

QuantumCamp is a growing school enterprise with a core mission of delivering amazing, hands-on math and science courses to kids in three platforms: QC In-School Labs, Homeschool Hubs, and Summer Camps.    

Schools around the world are partnering with QuantumCamp and directly incorporating our unparalleled library of science and math courses.    

In QC courses, students forge their own profound connection to our universe through carefully constructed lab sequences, which facilitate hands-on journeys through amazing math and science ideas.   

In this radical approach, we place kids in history, just before new knowledge was discovered. We set them free pursuing this new knowledge for themselves. All of science and math, then, becomes theirs. Each student is a shared owner of all the profound ideas in math and science.   

QuantumCamp has built 54 courses spanning 12 grade levels totaling over 1,600 hours of hands-on content, each of which is an arc of experiments and activities which draw students into the grandeur of an idea to be discovered.
