A Great Part-Time Opportunity For an Innovative Middle School Science Teacher

National Science Foundation is looking to hire an innovative middle school science teacher who is well-versed in NGSS, uses formative assessment to inform instruction, and utilizes technology in the classroom.

This is paid ($50/hr) part time (2-4 hours/week) consulting work and will be a year round project though the timing is flexible and the work can be done remote (e.g., working from home in yoga pants is cool).

NSF provides a classroom of Google cardboards to the middle-school teacher consultant to pilot all of the immersive games before they’re released to the public.

Learn about NSF team, NSF work, and see all of the spaces where they’ve been featured by clicking here. The current analog and digital (launching on iTunes shortly) science games are about venomous marine snails whose peptides are being used by scientists for palliative treatment for humans

The current project is a fully immersive virtual reality learning experience.

If interested please email ( and attach:

  • Your current resume
  • An NGSS aligned lesson plan WITH notes for differentiation AND how the you check for understanding (e.g., exit slips, informal questioning, any self-made assessment)
  • A quick note in your email about your use of technology in the classroom.
