Teach to Beat Cancer provides grades 6-12 science teachers with opportunities to engage in scientific research and education, that will enhance their skills, knowledge and abilities to teach science and principles of cancer biology, to motivate students to pursue careers in biomedical sciences and cancer research.
The program will consist of:
- a research immersion experience
- curriculum development coaching
- training in risk reduction and disparity elimination
Teachers will be placed in research labs where they will work with outstanding faculty investigators at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. They will be trained and expected to participate in a research project on a full-time basis for an 8-12 week period. Teachers are encouraged to participate in the program for at least two years. Stipends will be provided.
Interested teachers are encouraged to apply along with one of their students, to work as a teacher-student pair, so that teachers may identify aspects of research activities that best engage student interest.
Applications are not being accepted at this time.
