Internship Opportunity for Spanish Students

Spanish language Internship, Spring 2020

The Boise State Department of Geosciences has received a NASA ISGC K-12 STEM Engagement
grant to implement a career pathways program in Marsing, Idaho. Marsing hosts a student
population that is approximately 50% Spanish speaking. Additionally, an existing geoscience
outreach program has Marsing partnered with Spanish speaking schools in Guanacaste, Costa
Rica. Each school has an international weather station toward a potentially collaborative
climate education program.

This internship advertisement seeks a Spanish language student for 1 to 2 credits (45-90 hrs) to
assist with document translations (to send materials home to parents in Spanish), international
email communications in Spanish, and family/community events wherein a Spanish speaking
program representative may be beneficial.

Our outreach program benefitted greatly from previous Spanish language interns on this
project and we look forward to continuing that success. The intern will be working with
Pamella Aishlin Cedillo, PI on the NASA grant, Jan – May 2020. Work hours are flexible. Trips to
Marsing occur typically on Wednesdays or Fridays. One or two evening events may be
scheduled in Marsing. The intern will be needed to travel with the PI on a few of these trips.
Round trip travel time is just under two hours. Please contact pamaishlin@boisestate.edu to
present interest in this position.
