Program Instructors


Are you a teacher?

An informal educator?

Someone who likes to work with children?

Currently, our Educational Outreach Coordinator teachers ALL of our school-year clubs, workshops, Preschool Discovery Hour and over half of our summer camps! That is a lot of work for one person! Summer of 2013 marked the most camps we have ever presented in the summer, with 16 in all! As we continue to expand and grow, we need MORE instructors willing to teach our hands-on programs.

You could teach a 3-5 day camp, a semester long club that meets an hour a week, or a full day workshop. This is an excellent opportunity for students in the Elementary Education or Secondary Education program. Your first-hand experiences will prove invaluable on all resumes in the future! If you are interested, contact for more information or to request an application. We accept applications year round.

Gateway to Science also accepts program proposals year-round. Our instructors are community members from many walks of life, from teachers to engineers, college students to retirees. We typically offer summer camps of 3-5 days from late May into August. If you have an idea for something different than what we offer, please send it to us. We love new ideas!
