Be part of improving student learning and understanding in K-12 schools by engaging in education research.
MH-YES Teacher Fellows will be innovative high school teachers interested in strengthening their research and mentoring skills. They will join a professional learning community focused on engaging community members and students from under-represented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
Applications closed for 2019
YES Fellows will spend six weeks this summer working with an undergraduate to co-lead research teams made up of 3-4 high school students, under the advisement of Cary Institute and Marist College scientists and educators.
Additionally, one team will conduct a focal investigation to explore the factors associated with the risk of increase in Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) in the Hudson and its tributaries under our warming climate, and the other will study tributary flashiness, turbidity and water chemistry responses to storm events.
While the general research topics are set, it is imperative that research teams work together to develop their specific research questions. We are especially interested in local teachers who have experience working with students in the MH-YES Program target demographic.
$6000 for 6 full weeks of participation.
*Some travel support is available for teachers
