USC ReadersPLUS is searching for five undergraduate students with at least one year to commit to the Young Scientists Program. The Science Education Teaching Assistants will assist in implementing hands-on science lessons for 4th and 5th graders in the USC Family of Schools, including Weemes and Vermont Elementary Schools. These lessons will support teachers and students in reaching the goal of implementing effective science instruction into their classrooms. The objective is that the science labs at these schools will serve as a model for other school sites and will lead to increased science activities in all of USC's Family of Schools. Undergraduate students will teach science labs to a group off about 25 elementary school students. - Published on June 19, 2011.
