The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) is a non-profit organization that provides academic programs for gifted 2nd-12th grade students across the country and around the world.  We are currently seekinginstructors for our 2013 Summer Academic Programs.  As a CTY instructor, you will gain experience teaching gifted students, work in small classes with approximately 12-18 students, have your own teaching assistant, competitive salary, and a healthy lab budget for applicable science courses. Room & board is provided at all locations unless otherwise noted.
 
We are currently seeking candidates for the following courses, at the listed locations:
 
  • Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, July 20-August 10
  • La Jolla Country Day School, La Jolla, CA, June 20-July 13 (non-residential)
  • Maranatha High School, Pasadena, CA, June 20-July 13 (non-residential)
Through hands-on activities demonstrating basic physics, students examine Newton’s laws and delve into other elements of engineering and mechanics. Students in this course explore various approaches to problem solving in math and physical science. Competitive instructor candidates have had undergraduate or graduate coursework in Physics and/or Engineering, classroom experience (especially with the age group), and experience developing curriculum.
 
·        Seattle University, Seattle, WA, June 20-July 13
Students use sports to explore mechanics through lectures, hands-on activities and labs, mathematical problem sets, and research projects. Competitive instructor candidates have undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in physics and experience teaching.
 
  • Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA, June 20-July 13 and July 13-August 3
Covers material ordinarily included in a year-long, algebra-based introductory course in high school physics (the usual prerequisite for honors or AP Physics). Competitive instructor candidates have undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in physics and experience teaching AP Physics.
 
  • Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA (June 20-July 13)
This course offers students an introduction to the field of electrical engineering. Students learn the basic physical science behind circuits and electronics, including electrical current, voltage, resistance, conductivity, work, energy, power, and magnetism. Competitive instructor candidates have extensive undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in electrical engineering, and experience teaching. Competitive TA candidates have at least undergraduate coursework in electrical engineering and experience working with youth.
 
  • Windward School, Los Angeles, CA, June 23-August 5 (non-residential)
Students investigate the four forces of aerodynamics—weight, lift, thrust, and drag—as they develop an understanding of the physics of flight. Competitive instructor candidates have had undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in Physics and/or Aerospace Engineering, and experience teaching.
 
  • Windward School, Los Angeles, CA, July 13-August 3 (non-residential)
  • Maranatha High School, Pasadena, CA, June 20-July 13 and July 13-August 3 (non-residential)
  • La Jolla Country Day School, La Jolla, CA, June 20-July 13 (non-residential)
In this course, students dismantle gadgets to figure out how things work and use ordinary household items to create new inventions. Throughout this process of inquiry, discovery, and problem solving, students explore not only the how and why of various discoveries and inventions, but also the impact they have had on society across the centuries. Competitive instructor candidates have had undergraduate coursework in Physics, classroom experience (especially with the age group), and experience developing curriculum.
