Middle School Interns at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Unity has two 8th grade students who applied and were accepted to be science interns at the BBG. Richard Molina and Aveyona Stewart completed a lengthy application process that consisted of writing essays, filling out the application, getting two teacher recommendations, and conducting an in-person interview at the gardens. They will be getting paid to help with weekend education programs for elementary aged children. Interns will then be fast-tracked for yearly paid internships with increasing responsibilities culminating in scientific research/study in HS.
Thank-you to those teachers who stepped up with great recommendations!
