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 hands-on environmental science curriculum focused on the biodiversity of the Sonoran Desert. This upcoming Fall 2020 semester, interns will facilitate distance-learning lesson plans 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 July 31st, 2020.
