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.
