This annual six-day, full-time externship is for students interested in outdoor education and teaching. The NatureBridge externship is hosted at both Yosemite National Park and the Santa Monica Mountains, with all expenses paid including food and lodging. Participants gain teaching and research experiences as you co-lead a group of K-12 students with a NatureBridge Educator. Upon completion of the externship, participants are asked to submit a STEM based lesson plan based on skills, strategies, and topics learned during the externship. Participants will receive a $250 stipend once the lesson plan is submitted.
Open to all undergraduates at UC Merced and CalTeach undergradutes at UC Berkeley.
