Hello All,

The deadline has been extended to apply for the Sea S.T.A.R. (Students Teaching And Researching) internship program at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station. We are looking for eight rising high school seniors (students who are currently juniors age 16 and older) with an interest in education, biology or science to participate in our 8 week long Sea S.T.A.R. (Students Teaching And Researching) internship program on the beautiful shore of Eastern Virginia. This internship allows students to gain experience in an Environmental Education program while researching a Marine Science Project that interests them.

For 2 months over the summer, students will live, work and play on the Chincoteague Bay Field Station campus. This internship includes three components: programs, research and enrichment. Students will work alongside program staff to provide environmental education programs and summer camp activities; periodically attend college level courses; develop their own research project or legacy project; and explore the exciting marine habitats of the Eastern Shore of VA. This 2 month program is a wonderful opportunity to enhance and develop self-confidence, self-awareness, communication skills, and personal leadership style. The internship is a unique opportunity for students to gain job experience, to learn about the exciting field of Marine Science Education and to make new friends. Students will gain work and research experience that they may then apply in their senior year in high school and beyond.

We humbly ask that you please pass along the awesome opportunity to any junior level high school students you think might be interested. They can find out more information about the internship and application process on our website at: http://www.cbfieldstation.org/sea-star-internship.html. We are conducting interviews on a rolling basis so make sure they get their applications to us before all eight spots fill up. 

Thank you for your help in spreading the word about this awesome opportunity!
