Part-time Instructor Positions

Please share this with any terrific teachers/former teachers in your DC/Northern Virginia circles who might be interested in part-time instructor roles at our Lab at the VT/UVA campus at West Falls Church metro. Positions are available this Spring and early Summer, but also again in August/September.

No grades or paperwork, but lots of innovation and optional research opportunities. We also help to build maker spaces in regional schools.

We're looking for great instructors (who genuinely, demonstrably enjoy working with kids) interested in working 8 to 20 hours a week, primarily 9:30am to 1:30pm, and also with options for those interested in occasional afternoons and Saturdays. Most positions will be 2-3 days per week. Lab visitors are from age 6 to over 70 (but most are 4th-9th grades, teachers, and HS interns).

You'll learn a lot of new skills that are very relevant to new and proposed public school requirements for computer science, technology and engineering education, arts integration, technical career exploration, robotics and maker space design and instruction. We will also help licensed teachers expand your teacher certifications.

Interested teachers can apply through the formal university process.
