Mathematical Problem Solving Intern (Algebra to Pre-Calculus) - Mathematical Problem Solving interns support a certified teacher to deliver hands-on lessons to 6th-8th graders. The Problem Solving team ensures that our students like math and feel comfortable manipulating numbers and equations.
Logic Intern - Logic interns support a certified teacher in guiding 6th-8th graders through topics in symbolic logic and set theory, including truth tables, conditionals, logic gates, DeMorgan's Laws, logical arguments, power sets, intersections, and unions. Many of these topics are taught in the context of circuits using logic.ly.
Algebraic Structures Intern – Algebraic Structures interns assist a certified teacher in leading 7th-9th graders through topics in abstract/modern algebra. The Algebraic Structures team exposes our students to new concepts and gets them excited about exploring the wonderful world of math.
Statistics Intern - Applicants must have taken at least 1 semester of college statistics including R programming and have made an A. Statistics interns help a certified teacher teach 8th-10th graders topics in statistics using R Studio. These students then design their own independent inquiry, perform it, and bring the data back to Statistics class to analyze it with the support of their instructional team.

Engineering/Computer Science Positions
Engineering/Maker Intern - Engineering/Maker interns support a certified teacher to deliver hands-on lessons to middle and high school students. This position allows you to help students build independent projects using robots, micro.bits, and more! Great for those of you pursuing the Maker Certification in UTeach.
Computer Science/Electrical Engineering Intern – These interns have the option of teaching Electrical Engineering with Arduino to 6th-9th graders OR helping a certified teacher teach C++, Java, and other programming languages to 9th-11th graders. Great for those of you interested in computer science.
Physics Intern - Physics interns support a certified teacher in guiding 7th-9th graders through the discovery and study of various topics in physics. The Physics team inspires students to discover how the world around them functions.
Research & Inquiry Intern - Applicants must have made an B+ or better in Research Methods or an equivalent lab course. Research & Inquiry interns help a certified teacher mentor 8th-10th graders as they design and implement their own independent inquiry. The culmination of this class is a college-level research project. Having taken statistics in high school or college is a plus.
