Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

The purpose of CalTeach Physical Sciences and Engineering (CTPSE) is to encourage undergraduates in chemistry, engineering, computer science, and physics to pursue a secondary science teaching credential in chemistry or physics. CTPSE is the second Noyce program awarded to UCSB (the first program, CalTeach Santa Barbara, ended in 2014). CTPSE includes opportunities to learn to teach from award-winning science teachers at Dos Pueblos High School's Engineering Academy (DPEA), Santa Barbara High School's (SBHS) Green Academy, and/or San Marcos High School (SMHS). Students receive stipends and/or scholarships for their participation in CTPSE. Students can also receive mentoring if pursuing the Undergraduate Minor in Science and Mathematics Education and/or applying to a teacher education program. CTPSE is part of the larger UCSB CalTeach program.

UCSB teacher candidates pursuing a credential in physics or chemistry can apply to be a Noyce CTPSE Teacher Scholar and receive up to a $20,000 scholarship. Each scholar will complete part of his or her student teaching experience in the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy, Santa Barbara High School Green Academy, and/or San Marcos High School. Each will also participate in cohort-building, educational enrichment, and career guidance opportunities.
