TEAK: Contributors

More than 50 people, most of them undergraduate students, have contributed to the development and dissemination of TEAK materials. Students from several of RIT's colleges have worked as TEAK instructors, developed kits and lesson plans, and created web content; faculty and staff from the Kate Gleason College of Engineering and The Wallace center have also contributed to The TEAK Project.

TEAK Instructors

These students worked as instructors, teaching TEAK content to pre-college students in area classrooms, during after-school activities, or as part of summer camps. Student participation ranged from one-time lessons to summer camp instructors who involved TEAK lessons in their camp agendas to full time employment with The TEAK Project. Some of these students also worked on kit development, and they are recognized separately below.
