Hi Dr. Andrews,

A Note from Dr. Norris — Summer Teaching Opportunities for CS Students

This summer, UD will run for the second time a STEM program for young local students entering 9th or 10th grade called TexPREP. Last year we ran the third year courses: Intro to Statistics and Intro to Technical Writing. This summer, we will also run the fourth year courses: Computer Science, and another course which could be Water Science, Nano-Technology, Cyber-Security, or Computer Aided Design.

There will be approximately 20 high-achieving local Irving ISD students in both the third and fourth year programs.

The program runs June 15-July 24, Monday-Friday, with classes being held in the morning, 8:30-11:30 and in the afternoon from 12:30-3:30.

We are looking for two things:
* people who would be interested in teaching these courses (we already have someone in line for the Intro to Statistics course)
* student assistants who could be aides in the classroom and during the lunch period.

​The student assistants get paid approximately $11/hr. We would need 2 students who could work 8-4 with time off for lunch and rest in the middle, and a student who would work 2 hrs from 11-1. Maria Buckner was our assistant last summer and enjoyed it greatly. It is a great learning experience for students who have eventual interest in science and education, and a lot of fun as well.
