Education / Outreach Internships – Summer 2017
The Education & Outreach Department of the Lloyd Center for the Environment is in need of four (4) interns for the summer of 2017. The interns are responsible for assisting the education/outreach staff in teaching our hands-on science programs. The Lloyd Center’s educational philosophy is that hands-on experiential learning brings the study of science alive. Through this approach, students develop and retain knowledge of how the environment works and an appreciation for the need to conserve natural areas.
Dates: May/June 2017– August 2017
Responsibilities: Interns are responsible for assisting the education/outreach staff in teaching hands-on, science programs for children in Kindergarten through Middle School. The programs include field-based coastal ecology programs and in-school programs on estuarine organisms, whales, horseshoe crabs and watershed issues. Interns also help to develop and implement activities for our summer programs.
We offer introductory environmental programs for children 5- 7 years old and more in-depth science courses for students entering 3rd through 8th grades. Interns assist with outreach programs, lectures and walks for the general public, as well as contribute to the development and implementation of family and adult outreach programs. Interns also help to maintain our fresh and saltwater aquaria.
