*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
(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

(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

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,
