Opt4STEM Partnership for College Success Program

VON TEACHER

COLLABORATION 

 

Opt4STEM is looking for interested Von teachers to be a part of the planning and facilitation of Opt4STEM activities, including: 

 

STEM Enrichment Programs:

A vital part of OptSTEM is providing  Von students with unique opportunities to not only increase their interest in STEM but to enrich their understanding of and experience in these fields. Von teachers are needed to guide and enrich these programs. Events include the Bridge Building Competition and Engineering Week.

 

College and Career Readiness Workshops:

Each workshop is focused on preparing Von students for life after high school. Von teachers will assist the workshop leader with the planning and delivery of the workshop. Workshop topics include Essay Writing, Financial Literacy, College Choice, and more. 

 

Create Your Own Programs:

The "Create Your Own" is a chance for Von teachers to develop a program for Von students to participate in either at Illinois Tech or up at  Von. Interested teachers should contact Jennifer Sutton (jmsutton@cps.edu) or Megan Campanile (mcampani@iit.edu) to share and discuss your idea.
