Pacific Science Center look for interns from the Lake Washington area

Pacific Science Center’s Lake Washington Internship Program is now accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year. Applications for the North Creek Cohort in Bothell are due Sept. 20, and applications for the Mercer Slough Cohort in Bellevue are due Sept. 27.

The Lake Washington Watershed Internship is a year-long program that assists high school students in becoming informed stewards of their local community through mentoring, hands-on learning, habitat restoration and stream monitoring. High school students gain a greater understanding of the world around them while developing teaching and presentation skills, mentoring elementary-aged students about their local environment, gaining critical scientific skills and obtaining job experience.

As an intern, youth have the opportunity to explore their local environment through outdoor experiences such as hiking and canoeing. They also become leaders of long-term natural history, environmental science research and community outreach projects. Interns can participate in the program for up to three years and may be eligible to earn skill badges and college credit through the internship program.

Pacific Science Center is looking for students in grades 10-11 who live or go to school in Bothell and are interested in environmental science, working with youth and spending time outside. The internship will take place on the University of Washington Bothell campus (18115 Campus Way NE, Bothell, 98011) and will begin on Sept. 28.
