Do you have experience working with K-8 kids? Are you a scholar of science and math history?
We are searching for an individual to deliver our rich compendium of math and science curriculum to a small group of students in the San Francisco Bay Area and to write lesson plan units based on the micro-school teaching.
The role will require 8 to 12 hours per week of teaching in Palo Alto and the rest is curriculum edit, design, and format.
The primary thrusts: Devise learning objectives for students, deliver the content, run exciting labs, make evaluations based on a portfolio of work, work with the students to drive deep comprehension of great math and science concepts, write lesson plan units.
The overarching goal: Facilitate engaging, challenge-based science and math programs, with experiments and projects that lead to a meaningful understanding of the world.
At QuantumCamp, we build curriculum by contemplating how scientists and mathematicians truly acquire knowledge and advance their field. What experiments and activities are necessary to discover a new idea? This is the question that drives our curriculum design.
Quite naturally then, the experience of students is supremely authentic; they are discovering profound science and math ideas, about which most educators lecture. They come to own these ideas for themselves and in turn, confidence and engagement spring forth.
EXPECTATIONS AND ATTRIBUTES
Very competitive rate dependent on experience.

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.
