Project Code: STATE-RUS-26
|Project Title||English Language for STEM|
|Project Summary||Help the next generation of brilliant scientists prepare for exchanges and competitions by providing English language practice.|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||3|
We are looking for young people passionate about Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Teaching. We are partnering with a local foundation that provides after-school programs for rural youth aged 8-18 who are interested in science and engineering. The program participants will be high-achieving students who are getting ready to participate in international competitions in math, chemistry, physics and other sciences. The VSFS intern would provide English language conversation practice via Skype for the teams before they travel to international competitions, including in the U.S. We anticipate the project requiring several sessions of 2-3 each over the course of the year.
