Iowa-Teach: Exploring Mathematics and Science Teaching seminar is a course for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) majors, undecided and transfer students who might be interested in teaching as a career. The Iowa-Teach seminar is both an exploratory course and a gateway opportunity in math and science teaching. Students will explore the teaching profession by discussing current trends in mathematics and science education, interacting with master teachers from Iowa middle and high schools and discussing pathways to licensure. The Iowa-Teach seminar is a one credit, pass/fail course that meets one afternoon per week throughout the spring semester.
Upon completion in good standing, students will be reimbursed the cost of one resident undergraduate credit hour, paid to the student's U-bill. Additionally, those students expressing a desire to enter the teaching profession will have the opportunity to apply for a $1,000 competitive scholarship.
