Dear Physics Teachers,


We are writing to let you know about several summer physics, engineering, and astronomy teaching opportunities. Please see below for more information.



Physics and Engineering

Teaching Opportunities - Summer 2015


We are seeking enthusiastic instructors for our summer programs for gifted students in grades 2-12. CTY offers intense, 3-week academic programs for highly talented students from across the country and around the world. As science instructors you will have the opportunity to gain experience teaching gifted students, work in a small class setting (approximately 12-18 students, depending on the age group) with an assistant in each room, utilize a generous lab budget, and receive a competitive salary. Room & board are provided at residential locations, but staff local to the site can commute daily and do not have to live on campus. Courses are held over two 3-week sessions. Staff can work one or both sessions where available. Full course descriptions, job descriptions, and application can be found on our website: cty.jhu.edu/jobs/summer.


We are currently seeking instructor candidates for the following courses, at the listed locations:


The Physics of Engineering

La Jolla Country Day School, La Jolla, CA, June 25-July 18 (non-residential)

Windward School, Culver City, CA, July 18-August 8 (non-residential)

The Nueva School, San Mateo, CA, June 25 – August 8 (non-residential)

The Speyer Legacy School, New York City, NY, July 16-August 8 (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.


Electrical Engineering

                Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA, July 18-August 8

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 completed undergraduate or graduate coursework in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or Computer Engineering and experience teaching.


Introduction to Robotics

                Washington College, Chestertown, MD, June 25 – July 18

Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA, July 18-August 8

In this course, students develop familiarity with computer science concepts, basic principles of physics and mechanical engineering, and basic principles of electrical engineering. Using LEGO® robotics equipment, they work together to construct, program, and test their robots in a modern programming environment. Instructors should have experience and coursework in fields related to robotics such as computer science, physics, mechanical engineering or electrical engineering. Instructors should also have experience teaching and working with students in grades 5-12 in math, science, or technology.


Principles of Engineering Design

Seattle University, Seattle, WA, June 25 - July 18

Key principles of engineering design are explored primarily through the construction of working models. Through this hands-on learning process, students gain exposure to fundamental topics in physics and chemistry, including basic atomic structure, kinetic theory of gases, Newton’s laws of  motion, kinetic and potential energy, electrical current, and work. Competitive instructor candidates have undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in engineering, and experience teaching. Competitive instructor candidates have undergraduate and/or coursework in engineering and experience teaching.



Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA , July 18 - August 8

In this course, students explore the structure of the universe, learn about stellar evolution, and investigate the nature of galaxies. Students then move on to more complex topics such as modern cosmology and the ultimate fate of the universe. Competitive instructor candidates have extensive undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in astrophysics and experience teaching. Competitive TA candidates have undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in astrophysics and experience with youth.


Introduction to Astronomy

UC Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA, June 25-August 8

Students investigate topics as wide ranging as planetary science, solar physics, stellar evolution, general relativity, and the history of astronomy. Course is pitched at the college introductory level. Competitive applicants have had undergrad or grad coursework in Astronomy and experience teaching.


If you work with undergraduates or graduate students in physics, engineering, astronomy, or related fields, CTY also hires Teaching Assistants to work in our classrooms. We seek candidates with strong curricular backgrounds in the subject area and experience working with youth for the TA position.
