Paid Summer Externships for Summer 2015:
Learn how STEM content applies in industry
The LIFT2 program, now in its 12th year, places committed teachers into paid externships in companies in STEM fields so they can experience first-hand what careers might look like for their students. Through the job experiences, and a companion project-based learning course, teachers develop the skills and insights to make their teaching come alive in order to inspire students.
Corporations that have already committed to sponsor an extern this summer include:
A limited number of 5-7 week externships are available. These positions pay $800 per week and cover the cost of a 3-credit Project-Based Learning course designed to help teachers bring their experience back to their schools.
Educator applications are open through February 28th, 2015.
