Undergraduate Fellows

Undergraduate Fellows work in variety of science education outreach activities.  Some fellows work alongside WFIS Educators and GeoKids LINKS graduate fellows to help teach hands-on science lessons in 1st through 5th grade classrooms.  Others work with high school students in our High School LINKS program or assist in teaching the Science Education Service Learning course. During the summer, Undergraduate Fellows work with a faculty mentor to conduct a summer research project, and help to plan activities for science summer camps held at SJU.
