As a high school intern I have been working at Riverworks at Sturgeon City for a few months. I have learned a lot about working with children and how to create engaging/hands on lessons that inspire kids to change their mind about science and learning.

I love helping out and informing children and adults why Sturgeon City was created. It's important to take care of our environment and we want to make everyone alert about how t keep our water clean. I like telling people about the projects that are helping clean the water supply in Wilson Bay.

Because I am only a high school student, I have not had much work experience. I volunteered with Riverworks at Sturgeon City last summer by helping to lead science workshops for elementary students. The time I spent at Riverworks allowed me to develop important job skills such as problem solving and flexibility. The main thing that I learned was that things often times do not go as planned and that it is important to be able to handle these situations as they occur. The lessons I learned will greatly benefit me later in life as I continue my education and join the work force.

The Great!

As I volunteer I witnessed how quickly Riverworks was able to change the outlook of students toward science and school. Often times kids would arrive at the Riverworks program disinterested in science with a negative attitude, and by the end of the day those same students were smiling with excitement, and were ready to come back to learn more. Riverworks is such an affective program because it teaches students through hands on learning. This shows them how to apply what they learn in school to real life.

It would be better if Riverworks had more summer time employees to help run the program that way it could support more students.
