UCA STEMteach Policies

 

Through STEMteach we are approved for:
  • 7-12 mathematics
  • 7-12 life science/biology
  • 7-12 physics
  • 7-12 chemistry
  • 4-12 computer science

Candidates are required to earn a C or better in all STEMteach courses to earn credit toward their minor degree.

  1. Candidates are required to be admitted to the STEMteach program before STEM 2301; complete a background check and a child maltreatment check through the Office of Candidate Services.
  2. Attendance is crucial for STEMteach courses due to the amount of class participation and team/group work. Points will be deducted for absences and tardies. See your courses’ syllabi for specific information.
  3. Extensive early field (teaching and observing 2 hours each week) is required for STEM 2301 (spring only) and STEM 3300 (fall only). Please remember to make adjustments to include travel time when creating your course schedules.
