Benji,

Can you circulate the following to the ugrad list?

-Kevin

*Have you ever thought of becoming a K-12 teacher?*

*_Physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science_**students are 
invited to participate in two exciting events/opportunities *on behalf 
of UCSB's Noyce CalTeach Physical Sciences and Engineering (CTPSE) 
program.  The purpose of CTPSE is to encourage students to consider 
careers in teaching.  The program is sponsored by the National Science 
Foundation.

(1) The first is *an information meeting* on opportunities to explore 
teaching as a career.  It will take place in the *Engineering Sciences 
Building (ESB), Room 2001, at 5:30 pm on Thursday, February 27th*. 
Representatives from the UCSB Teacher Education program, the UCSB 
CalTeach program, and Dos Pueblos and Santa Barbara High School will 
discuss teaching as a career path for scientists and engineers. Pizza 
will be provided.

(2) The second is an invitation to *apply to be a Noyce CTPSE Intern or 
Scholar*.  See details below.

*Apply to be a Noyce CTPSE Intern....*

UCSB undergraduates in chemistry, physics, engineering, and computer 
science can serve as*Noyce Undergraduate Interns*in science and 
engineering education. They can earn stipends for their participation in 
classrooms. They can also participate in cohort-building, educational 
enrichment, and career guidance opportunities.

More specifically, the Noyce CTPSE Internship consists of a 6-week 
intensive summer experience (with an award of*up to a $2,000 summer 
stipend*) and regular participation during the academic year (with an 
award of*up to a $1,000 stipend per quarter*). (Note that if a student 
is receiving academic credit for participating in a classroom, he or she 
cannot receive a stipend for the same hours.) The purpose of the 
internship is to engage with high school students in the teaching and 
learning of science and engineering.  See the application for additional 
details.

We will award up to 10 Noyce CTPSE Undergraduate Internships each year. 
Applications for these Internships are due *Friday, March 14, 
2014*.Click here for an application 
<http://education.ucsb.edu/Undergrad-Studies/calteach/documents/CTPSEInternshipApplication.pdf>.

*Apply to be a Noyce CTPSE Teacher Scholar...*

UCSB teacher candidates pursuing a credential in physics or chemistry 
can apply to be a*Noyce Teacher Scholar*and receive*up to a $20,000 
scholarship*. Each Scholar will complete part of his or her student 
teaching experience in either the Dos Pueblos or Santa Barbara High 
School Academies. Each will also participate in cohort-building, 
educational enrichment, and career guidance opportunities. In exchange 
for the scholarship, after graduation, Noyce Teacher Scholars must teach 
for two years in a high need school district.

We will award up to 6 Noyce Teacher Scholarships each year. Applications 
for these Scholarships are due*Friday, February 28, 2014*. Please see 
theNoyce CTPSE/Hearst/Tuohy Scholarship Application
