OverviewTi2 is a young, exciting nonprofit committed to excellence in science and engineering learning for highly motivated K-12 students.
What do teaching team members have to say about Ti2?
When I accepted the instructor position, I had no idea what an impact it would have on me. I had taught before and enjoyed it, but I have much more fun as an instructor at Ti2. The students are incredible! They are so curious and excited that they don't feel shy about discussing tough concepts and testing their hypotheses alongside their peers. The students demonstrate a clear motivation to learn. I have one student who has to miss class periodically and comes in early just to make up each one. She cannot get enough. Me neither. Something special is going on at Ti2, and it's not just students who are being inspired!
