Prime the Pipeline Project:
Calling Secondary Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Business Teachers
Prime the Pipeline Project (P3): Putting Knowledge to Work is accepting applications from certified secondary teachers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and business to begin our program starting in September 2010. Spaces are filling fast so apply as soon as possible.
Through the P3 program, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, Arizona State University at the Polytechnic campus is investigating ways to better prepare high school students for the study of mathematics, science, and technology in high school and college.
- Learn cutting-edge science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through integrated projects
- Explore techniques to prepare your students for workplace technology careers
- Receive a stipend for participation and professional development credit. Teachers can earn $1,000 per academic year and an additional $1,000 for the summer session upon completion.
About Prime the Pipeline
Prime the Pipeline Project began in March 2009 and continues through the next 2 1/2 years. All teachers and high school students in the project participate in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and business explorations to apply mathematics and science principles.
Villages meet on the ASU Polytechnic campus to explore hands-on projects after school one afternoon per week for 8-9 weeks each semester and for a two-week summer institute during 2009 and 2010.
You will be working in small scientific villages consisting of about 15 high school students and 10 high school STEM-B teachers, along with ASU student mentors, and village leaders. Village leaders are faculty from ASU colleges and scientists from business and industry.
