The Bio/Diversity Project - Partner Teacher Application
The Bio/Diversity Project aims to increase interest and diversity in the environmental sciences among students traditionally under-represented in these fields (e.g., girls, Latino/a, Native American, African American), while fostering a sense of environmental responsibility among program participants. In order to do so, we train UA student interns majoring in environmental science or related fields to work with local teachers to develop and implement interactive, environmental science-related lessons with K-12 students. UA interns work with teachers to identify lessons and activities the fit within (or compliment) existing curriculum and then visit schools to deliver lessons for a minimum of 1 hour per week.

Each participating class receives a FREE field trip to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum or to Saguaro National Park. Classes also receive a FREE visit from local environmental science educators who usually bring live animals!

No prior knowledge of environmental science or biodiversity is required to participate in this program as a partner teacher. However, a commitment to fostering diversity in the sciences and environmental responsibility among students is!

If you are interested in participating as a partner teacher during the 2017-18 academic year, please complete the short application that follows. Email Nancy Freitas at nancylf@email.arizona.edu with questions.

This program is a collaboration between the UA Women in Science and Engineering Program, the Friends of Saguaro National Park, and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. It is generously funded by the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice through June 2018.
