The Teaching Experiences for Undergraduates (TEU) program is a seven-week immersive summer experience in secondary science or mathematics education at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, and Brown University in Providence, RI, funded by the National Science Foundation. TEU participants earn a generous stipend, take a 60-hour course in science pedagogy, and apply what they're learning to teaching urban high school students under the supervision of a master teacher-mentor. If you are committed to a career in secondary education or seriously interested in exploring the possibility of such a career, apply now.
