ABOUT TISNT outreach suggestions  |  educators: sign up now!

Conventional wisdom holds that elementary school students typically lose interest in math and science topics when they enter middle school. That interest may return later, but frequently it does not. "It's just NOT COOL...!"

But, as we know: That is SO not true!

TISNT employs university students to re-engage middle and high school students in science, math, engineering and technology.

This is accomplished by university educators, who volunteer to require their students, as a mandatory part of their classroom work, to perform “outreach” to middle and/or high schools students. It's that simple.

If you are a junior college, college or university educator, please consider signing up! (There is no cost for doing so.)

If you are a middle school or high school educator, please contact higher education professionals in your area, ask them to sign up, and get ready for entertaining and effective "near-peer" connections to engage and energize your students!
