Youth STEM Instructors are a team of dynamic, passionate and engaging leaders who are committed to delivering hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math programs for youth. Our team strives to provide high-quality high-impact programs to youth in our community, so they can build confidence and be successful in their future.
As a STEM Instructor, your job will be to educate and inspire these young minds, to provide them with a positive outlook on the world of science & engineering, and to serve as a resource to other educators through our hands-on workshops and summer camp program.
Our program targets resource sector employment and supports the cultural heritage of hunting and fishing as natural resources. In addition, while the engineering sector is open to women, in practice participation by women in STEM-heavy careers is under-represented and introduction to these career paths at an early age can open young minds to options otherwise not considered.
The K-12 Cavemen Engineers summer camp is a fun mashup of Science Venture meets Makerspace and How it’s Made – situated in Nature Education, for ages 6-12. Although the context is science, technology, engineering, and math, (STEM), class modules such as Rover Meets Smokey the Bear, and My Mom is a Sherriff are a fun and safe format introducing kids to STEM-heavy professional careers on working landscapes, and professional designations requiring firearm ownership.
NOTE: The camp is on public school property and no private firearms are involved in the curriculum.
Two instructors will be responsible for a single group of up to 20 children age 6-12.
The positions are 30 hours per week 8:30 – 16:00 weekdays, July 9 – Aug. 31
Location: Room 1103 Edward Milne Community School (EMCS) 6218 Sooke Rd., Sooke, BC
