Interns Gain Education Experience
A team of undergraduate interns have been participating in the Discovering the Science of the Environment program. The interns, majoring in a variety of scientific disciplines, are exercising their ability to explain what they are learning in the classroom, and gaining confidence in relaying scientific information to the public.  Additionally, they have an increased opportunity to learn a solid foundation in scientific concepts, which will one day translate to a certified teacher better prepared to teach science.  Learn more about the education interns experience here.
