One component of “METEOR” is the METEOR Teaching Fellows (MTF) whose mission is to utilize a novel, interactive, training focused on STEM and including key components of the Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers are embedded in one of our biomedical research laboratories or with a clinical research team for an 8 week summer program. Each teacher will also participate in four advanced STEM teaching certificate courses, one each term with a combination of field-based, distance and classroom learning. There will be approximately 15 two-hour sessions of face-to-face instruction each term meeting either at Children’s National Health System and/or GW. The face-to-face instruction will compliment the research experience and include approximately 7 hours of independent work developing and implementing lessons grounded in the lab experience. Being a METEOR fellow includes tuition fellowships for the 4 GW STEM Certificate courses in addition to a stipend for the summer research experience.
