Support and develop educational activities for NOAA Seattle Science Camp

Posted on: 02/09/2023

Summary / Description

NOAA Science Camp in Seattle, WA seeks support in growing our program to incorporate new opportunities and lessons learned over the course of a 3-year pandemic driven hiatus from in-person programming. As we return to offer our on-site summer camp again in 2023, we hope to build upon the strong foundation of our twenty years of programs, while integrating new and innovative curricula that reflect and support current events and issues relevant to both NOAA and to today’s youth.We hope to collaboratively identify 3-5 opportunities to modify or develop new NOAA Science Camp curricula that support program goals to expand capabilities and serve broader audiences. Within these identified opportunities, the intern will pick 1-2 activities to fully (re)design and develop into usable products for future summer programming. The scholar will also provide recommendations and tangible next steps to develop the remaining opportunities into future activities.
