Foundry10 is a philanthropic educational research organization looking for a part-time undergraduate intern to support the marine science team for up to 10 weeks in summer 2021 (flexible dates to be determined upon acceptance). Foundry10 spans many subjects from virtual reality to dance, and we are actively growing in the marine science and environmental education field. The marine science team’s goal is to empower local youth to take action for global ocean and climate resilience while anchoring all programs and partnerships in environmental justice. Within these guiding frameworks, we are looking for an intern to draw upon their unique perspective, create a learning opportunity, and share that with the education community.
Potential projects could encompass the introduction of ocean technology tools in classroom settings focused on youth; engagement with environmental issues through art, film, photography, virtual reality, or performance pieces; creation of professional development for marine science researchers or educators; or place-based curriculum design related to the Salish Sea. Internships are currently being planned to be virtual with remote work only.
If you would like to be a part of foundry10 this summer, please submit your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, please clearly outline how you could contribute to our marine science team, how you would benefit from this experience, and in what ways we could help propel you forward with your future plans. Applications are due by April 29, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. This is a part-time position of up to 25 hours per week with the potential to work more, depending on the seasonal needs of the team. The hourly pay rate for this position is $20/hr.
