[job]: NOAA Science Camp Educator/Assistant (Seattle, WA)

Do you enjoy inspiring young minds about our oceans, coasts, and atmosphere?

NOAA Science Camp is hiring Science Camp Educators and Assistants for our summer 2015 camp programs offered July 6-10 and July 13-17 in Seattle,WA.
The University of Washington’s Washington Sea Grant and The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has an outstanding opportunity for temporary, part time Science Camp Educators and Science Camp Assistants.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Washington Sea Grant (WSG) are embarking on the thirteenth season of NOAA Science Camp for middle-school youth located at the NOAA Sand Point facility on Lake Washington in Seattle.  The camp offers two 1-week day camp sessions in July. The 6th, 7th and 8th grade campers are divided into five groups and rotate throughout the week to different science disciplines represented within the NOAA facility.  Areas of focus include and are not limited to: (1) fisheries and marine mammals, (2) weather, (3) environmental assessment and oceanography, (4) nautical charting and, (5) NOAA research vessels, diving, and ocean exploration.  The camp also offers a teen leadership program for high school students.  Team building, small-group project presentations, and large-group activities with both campers and Junior Leaders are directed by Camp Educators and Camp Assistants, all of which are very important aspects of the week-long camp. 

Our goal is to provide youth with an opportunity to experience NOAA science first-hand and learn how it applies to their local and global community.  We hope to demonstrate that science is not just a “required” school subject, but an interesting field to explore and choose as a career.  Each person attending the camp will leave with an increased environmental knowledge and awareness.
