Teacher Fellows

Local Math and Science teachers are selected to work with COSMOS clusters. Teacher Fellows consult with university colleagues on course design and serve as a liaison between students and faculty during the four week program. Fellows participate in course delivery, laboratory work, and field trips. A complete list of 2015 Teacher Fellows will be listed in the Student Handbook when available.
