Preparing Next Generation Science Teachers
Through scholarship support, the New York Noyce STEAM Pipeline Program at Adelphi/NSF Robert Noyce Program is designed to encourage individuals with a background in science and/or trained in STEM fields to consider a teaching career in science education.
This program allows qualified individuals to earn an MA in Education and a New York State Teaching Certification for grades 7-12 in one of the science disciplines: biology, physics, earth science or chemistry.
Students will receive $26,000 of tuition support for the 13-month graduate program.
High Quality Education
A science education core program that leads to the MA in Adolescence Education and prepares Scholars for initial certification in grades 7-12 science in chemistry, biology, earth science, or physics in New York State
Situated Teaching and Learning
A focus on engaging Scholars in learning to develop robust, NGSS aligned curriculum through STEAM approaches embedded with program coursework, workshops and internships (i.e. out of school experiences as well as school based curriculum).
Integration on Non-Formal Learning Experiences
Scholar participation with an informal learning center during which Scholars will work closely with a community based organization in preparing and implementing STEAM related field experiences for students in grades K-12 in a paid internship.
Support and Mentoring
The program will support scholars through participation in a Scholar Learning Community (SLC) for the first two years of teaching serving as an opportunity to continue building professional teaching skills through STEAM, collaborate with others in deep reflection of their practice and build a trusting community and network of Adelphi Noyce scholars.
New York City
This program is located at the Adelphi Manhattan Center.
The New York Noyce STEAM Pipeline: Preparing Next Gen Science Teachers program is framed by the following goals:
- Enhance and broaden strong partnerships between K12 school partners, university faculty and administration, and regional informal learning environments;
- Increase the number and retention of highly qualified students from underrepresented groups that graduate with a science teaching degree;
- Increase the use of STEAM (STEM + Art/Design) practices in science classrooms to augment and enhance the science curriculum aligned to The Next Generation Science Standards/NGSS.
