UTeach Outreach Course

UTeach Outreach is changing the world, one future scientist, engineer, and mathematician at a time. You can, too!

Every semester, UT students from all majors enroll in the UTeach Outreach CH207K and CH371K courses. These UT students learn how to create and teach engaging lessons that inspire 2nd-8th grade students to explore important technology, mathematics or science principles. 

You will receive UT course credit by teaching eight hands-on lessons with a partner in two local public school classrooms. Check with your advisor about how Outreach can fit into your degree plan and what type of credit you will receive.
