Summer Employment

Career Intern Coordinator

The Education Division is currently seeking a Middle School STEM teacher to participate in a once in a lifetime opportunity. As part of a $21 million multi-institution research project called SOCCOM (Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling), we are seeking a talented and motivated Middle School STEM teacher to participate with their class in this project. There is no cost involved, other than a love for learning and passion for igniting students interest in the STEM fields.

“The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project is partnering with teachers and classrooms across the country to inspire and educate students about the Southern Ocean and climate change through its “Adopt-A-Float” initiative. It creates a powerful opportunity for elementary- and secondary-aged students to engage directly with world-class scientists and learn about their research by naming and tracking SOCCOM floats.” (source
