The Department of Learning and Instruction, in The Graduate School of Education, is looking for “Science Ambassadors,” UB students interested in science education and outreach, to support local biology teachers in the Buffalo Public Schools.  This is a full academic year (2022-2023) commitment, in which the ambassadors are paired with a teacher and spend 4 hour per week working collaboratively in that teacher’s classroom.  During the fall semester, the ambassadors are enrolled in a 3 credit course, during which they share experiences, discuss classroom challenges, and develop educational strategies to be used in the classes.  The ambassadors stay paired with the same teacher and are paid for their time in the classroom during the Spring 2023 Semester.  It is highly recommended that interested students have transportation to get to and from their assigned schools.
