Funded by a Robert Noyce grant from the National Science Foundation, this internship aims to engage STEM students in educationally purposeful activities that allow them the opportunity to examine their interest in and disposition for teaching science or mathematics in middle or high schools.
Two NLSIs will be selected (see selection process) to serve internships at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in Manhattan, New York. Participants at this location will be associated with members of the scientific and professional staff in an educational program developed to give research experience in areas of chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, nuclear medicine, applied mathematics, and high and low-energy particle accelerators. Brookhaven interns will take part in scientific seminars, visit major BNL facilities, and join a research group that may result in the opportunity to present their research results verbally and/or in writing and their work may appear in a scientific journal or BNL report. While serving, all student interns will have the mentorship of a Master Teacher who is currently working in K-12 education as a teacher and is familiar with the research environment of a Department of Energy National Lab (DOENL). The master teachers will assist the interns in translating their research experiences into inquiry-based K-12 educational modules that are aligned with national science standards.
