Science Adventure School (SAS) is a 4-day, 3-night outdoor science school serving West Virginia’s youth. At SAS, sixth graders try outdoor adventure sports while learning through hands-on, engaging lessons in physical and environmental science. Our innovative Science Behind the Sport lessons connect students to the engineering, physics, and math involved in archery, cycling, rock climbing, and more. We inspire students to think more deeply about the science in their daily lives, while the SAS program as a whole helps students become more confident and gain valuable interpersonal skills they’ll use in middle school and beyond. The Lead STEM Educator will play a crucial role in meeting these goals by training and supervising a small team of STEM Instructors, delivering Science Behind the Sport curriculum, and providing program support. In July, the Lead Environmental Educator will also teach SAS environmental lessons at the 2023 National Scout Jamboree. The Jamboree presents a unique opportunity to get familiar with both the Summit Bechtel Reserve and the Science Behind the Sport curriculum before the SAS season begins, as we showcase our programming to tens of thousands of Scouts from across the country.
The applicant must, at a minimum, have the following experience/qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in physics, geology, engineering, mathematics, or another related STEM field or equivalent experience Thorough understanding of core science concepts appropriate for middle school At least one year of outdoor science education and/or teaching experience (both informal and formal preferred) Ability to provide useful, constructive feedback to colleagues and team members Willingness to live and work in an outdoor setting that requires moderate physical activity Flexibility, organization, and willingness to create new systems where needed
