Flame ChallengeThe Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science is challenging scientists to answer the question “What is Sound” this year. As part of the Flame Challenge, scientists are encouraged to submit entries explaining “What is Sound”, while 11-year-olds from around the world are encouraged to think critically while judging the entries. 10 schools are chosen to join Alan Alda at the World Wide Assembly every year to discuss the entries. Winning entries are chosen by 5th and 6th graders around the world after this event. One scientist from each category (written and visual) wins a $1000 prize, a trip to NYC, and the prestige that comes with winning this prize! Enter as a scientist, or register your class at www.flamechallenge.org.

TEP’s new Graduate Teaching Initiative (GTI) offers UO graduate students structured and rigorous, yet flexible, pathways to develop as college teachers. Those who complete a series of core requirements earn a certificate of completion: GTI students participate in individual- and small-group teaching consultations, draft a teaching portfolio, observe classes taught by faculty and peers, and attend various workshops and conversations on teaching.
