iNviTECH's STEM Education Internship (STEM Edu) program places highly qualified and motivated individuals in leadership roles within iNviTECH Clubhouse's STEM Summer Camp program. iNviTECH Clubhouse is home to all of iNviTECH's before and after school programs, camps, and track-out programs for K-8 students. Programs are designed to provide students with a hands-on learning curriculum to engage students in a variety of STEM subjects while equipping them with the 21st-century skills they need to excel in today's heavily STEM-based society.
iNviTECH Clubhouse's STEM Summer Camp provides a stimulating and enriching environment for 1st-6th grade students (ages 5-12) to learn, grow, and explore. Throughout the camp, children learn about the world around them by “doing” with hands-on, meaningful experiences called “explorations!”. iNviTECH interns have the opportunity to serve as STEM Instructors, Teaching Associates, and Camp Counselors for the STEM Summer Camp and play a pivotal role in creating a fun, safe, and educational environment for campers.
Camp Counselors work closely with Instructors and Teaching Associates to ensure the camp runs smoothly. The core responsibilities of camp counselors are to supervise campers during "free-play" and group acitivits, assit with preparing for and cleaning up after labs/activities, and working to enforce COVID-19 safety protocol among campers. In general, Camp Counselors are responsible for the overall supervision of campers with the aim of providing a healthy, safe and enjoyable camp environment and experience.
Teaching Associates work closely with Instructors to assist with STEM labs and activities, in addition to designing and leading their own small group activites for campers. The core responsibilities of teaching associates (TAs) are preparing for and cleaning up after labs/activities, assisting with general administrative tasks, supervising campers, and generally helping to ensure that the camp runs smoothly.
Summer camp STEM Instructors are responsible for creating and teaching hands-on interactive lesson plans and acitivites for camp students. Instructors' core responsibilities are to plan and conduct their lesson, labs, and acitivites, within our guidelines, to monitor and evaluate the progress of each of their students, and to supervise an instructional assistant. Instructors will create and lead a 45-60 minute STEM lab/activity each day of camp to three small groups (15-18) of campers.
