Does this describe you?
…then join the Science Explorers team of
after-school club and
science summer camp instructors!
Science Explorers is looking to hire instructors with energy and enthusiasm to become part of our team. In this part-time opportunity you will work with children to immerse them in the cool, fun and totally entertaining world of science. You’ll do so by engaging in a range of activities throughout each session.
Think back to when you were a kid and wanted to understand how the world worked. That innate curiosity drives the lessons we plan for the children. We encourage you to use your creativity to come up with new ways to connect with our little explorers. Whether you have space in your schedule to teach at our summer camps or our after-school programs, we can’t wait to welcome you aboard.
Just imagine showing kids how to dissect an animal or build a rocket ship, or helping kids connect batteries to airplanes or cars of their own making and watching them go. Imagine playing with goo, brightly colored liquids and plants. Think of how enjoyable it would be to go to work each day when you engage in these kinds of activities. Our instructors’ smiles are just as big as the kids’ at the end of every club or camp day.
