Looking for ideas for putting bringing next generation STEM into your classroom?
Wish your students could interact with a scientist or mathematician role model?

Calling All Professors and Researchers in Math and Biology!

Want to share your experiences in doing research at the forefront of math and life science with teachers and students of younger grades? Interested in keeping up to speed on the latest trends in K-12 STEM education?

Join the NIMBioS Teacher Collaboration Program (TCP)!

NIMBioS will pair K-12 teachers with interest in mathematics and biology with active researchers in the math biology community including: faculty, post-docs, and educators from the institute and recruits from the math biology community.

Collaboration activities can include:

  • Electronic emails
  • Phone sessions
  • Teaching projects
  • Classroom visits (in person or via web)
  • Cooperation for after school activities (in person or via web)
  • Curriculum discussion
  • Enhanced applications to math biology
  • Discussions on work assignments

NIMBioS will also maintain a Wiggio, an online collaboration community, for the purposes of sharing ideas, information, resources and event schedules.

To request a collaborator, please fill out the Teacher Collaboration Request Form.

Once a match is made, you will receive your collaborator's name and contact information and you will be given access to the Teacher Collaboration Program’s wiggio. Please be patient. We want to match you with someone who meets your preferences, so it may take some time to find your collaborator.
