Urban Mathematics and Science Teacher Collaborative - (Noyce)
Tufts University's Department of Education is the proud recipient
of a generous Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant through
the National Science Foundation. The grant has supported math and
science teachers interested in pursuing their Master of Arts in
Teaching (MAT) degree at Tufts as part of the Urban Mathematics
and Science Teacher Collaborative (grades 1-12).
The program has funded nine teaching fellows with undergraduate
degrees in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics) disciplines and who have demonstrated a commitment to
teaching young people in high-needs school districts for at least
four years after graduation. Fellows in the program spent 12 months
as students in Tufts' intensive MAT teacher preparation program,
working with Tufts faculty to focus on improving mathematics and
science teaching and learning in grades 1-12. The fellows are now
involved in ongoing mentoring provided by the program.
