We’re looking for a graduate student who is interested in working with high school students to help them learn critical thinking, habits of scientific work, and important science concepts! This is a paid teaching opportunity (four quarters, 10-20 hours per week).

Each year, the lead graduate student (you!) and the faculty member (me, Brian!) work together to develop a curriculum that's based on a theme that we come up with. 

Our past projects or themes have included:

  1. AI and robots
  2. Cities in space
  3. Quantum information
  4. Making and solving games

We will meet with the high school students (10-25, depending on the year) for 2 hours per week (on Saturdays) during the academic year (about 25 meetings per year).  We also host two institutes (Winter and Summer), during which we focus on projects related to the theme. The Saturday meetings help prepare for the Institutes.

You will have the opportunity to develop a curriculum, perform classroom teaching, and develop your skills in pedagogy. Our goal is to help students follow their curiosity, learn science outside the classroom, and build habits of critical thinking that they can take with them for their future endeavors.

Please see the attached UChicagoGRAD Gargoyle ad for additional information. 

I'm excited to meet you and discuss how we can work together in this great program! Please contact me (Brian Nord) at if you'd like to apply or if you have any questions!
