Looking for a Robotics Teacher: Columbia Secondary School for Math, Science and Engineering


Columbia Secondary School for Math, Science and Engineering, a selective, Columbia University supported public school in northern Manhattan, is seeking someone to take over our Robotics Programming course on Tuesdays from 2:40-3:40 and Thursdays from 1:00-2:40. The students are a small (15) highly motivated group and range in age from 11 to 14. Started in early January, the course has focused on Robot C for the NXT, as we were working with a teacher with very strong computer science background. Unfortunately, the instructor was a student teacher who is moving on to a new school assignment next week. We are open to taking the course in new directions, depending upon the strengths of the applicant.

In addition to this part-time position, we have ambitions to hire a F/T technology / engineering / robotics teacher who can also help us build our unique 7-year engineering program and launch a competitive FIRST program at the school. The part-time position might be an excellent opportunity for the school and instructor to get to know each other and consider a longer term hiring option.

Anything you can do to help us identify talented individuals for this opportunity would be greatly appreciated!
