ElevatED Stem Pre-Teaching Society

ElevatED

> 69% of high school graduates are not ready for college-level science and 54% for math

> The U.S. is ranked 23rd in science and 31st in math on international exams

> Females and minorities are under-represented in STEM fields

To turn this situation around, the U.S. needs to ensure that we have a high-impact teacher in every classroom. That is why we are forming a national STEM Pre-Teaching Society and seeking USC students who want to found their campus’ chapter.

To learn more about founding the pre-teaching society, RSVP for our info session on March 25 (6-7pm GFS112) and/or read this overview document which covers:

* Why a STEM pre-teaching society

* The mission and purpose of the group

* The resources & support provided to chapter founders

If you have any questions or would like to request more information, you can use this form or email founding president Manny Soriano directly (mssorian@usc.edu)

As a founder of the ElevatED Pre-Teaching Society at USC, you will not only leave a legacy on campus, but also encourage the next generation of math/science teachers. We will organize seminars and internships in teaching. We plan to host a STEM enrichment after-school program for middle schoolers over spring break and we will organize a STEM enrichment day at Columbia during spring semester.

Just like a pre-law or pre-med society serves as a community of students interested in those professions and supports them to explore the profession, ElevatED enables students to explore the teaching profession to determine how they can be involved in improving STEM education and ending educational inequity.

Students at Stanford, NYU, and Columbia are forming like-minded student groups, and ElevatED is spreading to the top 100 universities.

Questions?
