Walking Mountains Science Center is now accepting applications for our multi-faceted graduate fellowship. This is a unique 2 year and 3-month commitment through which graduate fellows will teach summer science camps, school field science programs and afterschool programs, while they simultaneously participate in a Master of Arts graduate program through University of Northern Colorado and earn an M.A. in Science Education. This multi-faceted graduate fellowship is a full-time, 2 year and 3-month professional development program that focuses on K-12 field science education, leadership, and helping to grow a reputable nonprofit organization. Over the course of the first summer, graduate fellows are mentored by the outgoing cohort of educators, and together are responsible for preparing and teaching week-long youth natural science camps to students primarily in 1st-4th grade. There are a few middle school programs offered as well. Most summer camps are day camps, but some are residential and based out of backcountry huts. By fall, graduate fellows will be fully responsible for planning, preparing and teaching K-12 students in a variety of field science topics such as geology, sustainable energy, biodiversity research, weather, ecosystems, snow science and winter ecology. Ranging from one to three days, and sometimes residential, field programs are a vital supplement to traditional classroom learning. The majority of school programs are one day in length.
