The Bio/Diversity Project is currently seeking applicants for our upcoming 100% remote Spring 2021 internship opportunity for UArizona students! The Bio/Diversity Project brings together the combined efforts of the Women in Science and Engineering Program (WISE) at the University of Arizona, Saguaro National Park, and the Friends of Saguaro National Park to diversify the environmental sciences and provide environmental science outreach education to underserved schools in metro-Tucson. Applications and more information can be found on our website at: biodiversityproject.arizona.edu. Please reach out to Elena Greenberg at email@example.com with any questions.
Interns in the Bio/Diversity Project are paired with local K-12 teachers and serve in Title I schools to implement culturally relevant, place-based, and engaging environmental science curriculum focused on the biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert. This upcoming Spring 2021 semester, interns will facilitate distance-learning lessons to local K-12 students. In exchange for a commitment of 10 hours per week, interns receive 3-units of academic credit through any of 17 different departments. Weekly internship classes and assignments help equip interns with the skills necessary to develop curriculum and teach through an equity lens, and are utilized directly in the K-12 classrooms.
Applications for interns are accepted with a deadline of December 18th, 2020. Early applications are preferred. Apply Today
