The Education intern will gain hands-on experience into how environmental education programs are designed, developed and delivered which may include Camp H2O, teacher workshops, and school year programming. The intern’s level of involvement in each of these programs will vary seasonally. Interns will shadow Education staff members, contribute to various aspects of programming, and assist with daily operations and administrative tasks. Throughout the semester, interns will learn how to effectively deliver learning objectives appropriate for the audience through activities/games, crafts, or lectures that can be translated into a 45-minute program or a 5-day camp. Interns will also complete a semester-long project that supports the department and grows the intern as an environmental education professional.
