Lloyd Center Summer 2022 Internships

Environmental Education/Outreach Internships
The Education & Outreach Departments of the Lloyd Center for the Environment are in need of interns for the summer of 2022. 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 learning brings the study of science to life! Additionally, interns assist with various outreach programs and aquaria maintenance. An Environmental Education/Outreach Internship at the Lloyd Center is an excellent way to gain classroom experience, work with live animals, and connect to the local community!

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 the Center’s summer programs.

The Lloyd Center offers introductory environmental programs for children six to nine 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.

Please note: There are Education Outreach Internships for full-time positions, Monday–Friday, 8:30am-4pm, with occasional weekend hours. Part-time positions are also available.
