NEW: Dewitt Middle School T.A. Program
Do you like teaching? If you do, join the DeWitt Middle School TA program, and earn credit! In the Cornell-DeWitt TA program, undergraduate students help teach technology education to 8th graders at the DeWitt Middle School in Ithaca and earn up to five flexible credits per semester.
Typically, Cornell students earn 1 credit of MAE 4980, Teaching Experience in Mechanical Engineering, for every three hours of teaching per week at DeWitt. MAE 4980 can be used (with advisor’s approval) as an advisor-approved elective in MAE. With a MAE faculty sponsor, it is also often possible to arrange credit for MAE 4291 (Supervised Senior Design
Experience) for projects at DeWitt. Cornell students can design new projects for the kids and prepare the corresponding lectures.
