We employ undergraduate peer leaders helping teach the intro physics labs, which gives them early experience in teaching. These students also serve as tutors.
We are developing an outreach program for all of the sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics) to work with local high schools, both visiting them and having their students come to campus.
We have just created a new track, developed specifically for studetns interested in teaching physics and math. The track emphasizes interdisicplinary connections: a math minor and three upper division education courses are required; introductory chemistry is required and physical chemistry may be used to satisfy the thermodynamics requirement.
