Free summer program for future Math and Science Teachers

May 5, 2010

GATE (Governor’s Academy for Teaching Excellence) is a FREE three-week summer educational program for talented Texas high school students, entering the 11th and 12th grade, who are interested in teaching careers especially in the fields of mathematics and/or science at any level.

Students will spend three weeks on our campus enriching their educational skills, interacting with other talented teens, and learning from experienced master teachers. These students will enroll in a full-credit university-level teacher education course, which can definitely give them a head start on earning college credit and preparing them for the professional world. The program includes field trips, films, guest speakers, mentorship from exceptional educators, and firsthand teaching experience in our “Kid’s College,” a summer program for elementary students.

GATE students will live in university housing during their stay on campus where resident advisors and mentor teachers will supervise and mentor the students at all times. In addition to tuition, the program covers the costs of meals, lodging, and instructional materials.

Need-based travel stipends are also available for participants who express need.
