The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program is a grant funded through the National Science Foundation to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors and professionals to become certified secondary (grades 7-12) science and math teachers.
The Mesa Community College Education Studies Department in conjunction with the Northern Arizona University Center for Science Teaching and Learning have jointly facilitated Phase I of the NAU Noyce Fellows grant, September 2010 - June 2016.
MCC oversaw paid Noyce internships in STEM-focused, K-12 summer youth camps in order to provide college freshmen and sophomores with backgrounds in STEM subjects and an interest in teaching a chance to observe and engage in STEM education.
NAU oversaw juniors, seniors, and post-baccalaureate students that were selected for substantial Noyce Fellows scholarships and were enrolled in an NAUTeach secondary education STEM teacher certification program.
Over six summers, 140 college freshmen and sophomores completed 13,536 hours as Noyce interns in K-12, STEM-related summer camps impacting approximately # youth!
