Here is a great opportunity to take part in the UCSD Biocircuits Outreach program. Of all the outreach programs, this is probably one of the best ones. Essentially, you would go to a elementary school in Encinitas (about 12 miles away) that is underrepresented with a mostly Hispanic population. The experiments include biological and physical sciences (induced geology). The classes are 3rd-6th grade.
Roya Mahmoudi is the coordinator. She is very passionate about this program, which she has been running over the past few years. Roya also has previous teaching experience since she used to be a high school science teacher.
This event occurs every Wednesday from 11:00am-1:00pm (that includes travel time, only a 1 hour lesson plan). These lessons are held once a week throughout the academic year (roughly going until June). Although to be a teacher for this program, you have to dedicate going to the school once a week for the whole year, volunteers are also readily needed to help assist the graduate student teachers whatever weeks are possible. Volunteers will not have to come every week but just give Roya an e-mail or whoever Roya teams you up with.
To take part in this incredible volunteer opportunity please contact Roya at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will like to meet with you and make sure to have you work with the right teacher and the right grade level.
