StormFest – PAID position June 13 & 14 Environmental Education

Here is a great 2 day opportunity!

StormFest is a unique 2-day, interactive stormwater science educational festival for 6th grade students at Highline School District. The event is funded through grants and cities within the Highline school district boundaries. Environmental Science Center has adapted the hands-on Drain Rangers curricula to create 5 different 25-minutes innovative in-field, experiential lessons focused on local water quality and stormwater solutions that meet Washington State Common Core and NGSS 6th grade standards.

In order to make this event an even greater learning opportunity we are providing training and compensation to undergraduate or graduate students, recent graduates, para-educators, local government employees, non-profit employees or individuals looking to gain hands-on experience implementing environmental lessons. All levels of experience are welcome!

Station educators will be compensated $200 for their participation in a 4-hour training and both days of StormFest, on June 13 and 14. Lunch and free on-site parking will be provided to station educators on both days of the event.

We would really like to find station educators with a passion for environmental science and who reflect the many languages, races, ethnicities and countries of origin within the Highline school district community. As there are many 6th grade students who are English Language Learners, bi-lingual station educators will be compensated an additional $50 for their language services.

Mentor high school women through UW’s Making Connections

Making Connections is a college readiness program for local high school girls that primarily targets first generation students and students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds. We work with students from freshman to senior year by providing tutoring, mentoring, career exploration workshops, and assistance through the college application process. The program has a strong focus on STEM careers, and we encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math. Women of color are dramatically underrepresented in STEM fields, and we hope to combat this by providing supportive and informational programming and guidance in STEM career exploration.

Our mentoring program matches our high school students with people who have been through high school and the college admissions process to provide support and guidance. We seek mentors who will…

• dedicate 4-6 hours a month toward building a relationship with their mentee
• offer support, advice, and guidance to their mentee while they explore higher education, apply for college, and gain knowledge about the STEM fields,
• support and motivate their mentee towards success in achieving their aspirations.
• attend a mandatory mentor orientation and training
• attend mentor-mentee socials with your mentee as well as other Making Connections workshops and activities
• provide monthly updates to program staff

Here is a link to the mentoring application:

The University of Washington acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations.

We acknowledge the people – past, present, and future – of the Dkhw’Duw’Absh, the Duwamish Tribe, the Muckleshoot Tribe, and other tribes on whose traditional lands we study and work.
