Time is running out for for teachers in science, technology, engineering and math to apply for fellowships at the UC Davis C-STEM Center.

Friday is the deadline to apply in robotics or as part of the center’s Computing Research Experiences for STEM Teachers program.

The center is recruiting eight robotics fellows to work with UCD faculty and students on the project “Co-Robotics for STEM Education in the 21st Century.” Fellows will be trained to use modular robots to promote student engagement and academic success, especially in algebra, according to a news release.

The fellowship includes two weeks of professional development in the summer, followed by work in the classroom in academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15, and comes with about $5,000 worth of equipment and an annual stipend of $2,000.

The center is recruiting 15 pre-service and in-service STEM teachers to participate in CREST, a National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Teachers site project.

Fellows will take part in a six-week summer program, with follow-up through the next school year. They will learn C and C++ programming and develop strategies to integrate computing and robotics into their teaching. The fellowship includes a stipend of $4,800 for in-service teachers or $3,000 for pre-service teachers during the summer program, with additional support during the school year.

The center is also offering its annual Summer Institute from June 24 to July 5, with two weeklong courses for teachers on robotics technology and computer programming and on algebra/pre-algebra teaching with robotics.

Participating students and teachers will showcase their robots and take part in competition on C-STEM Day, May 4.
