Project Description

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Education Portal (noaa.gov/education) is a one-stop shop to connect with learning and teaching resources about the ocean and atmosphere. We collect materials and opportunities from across the agency to engage the public in NOAA’s cutting edge scientific research.

NOAA Education wants to ensure that our materials are Section 508 compliant (https://section508.gov/). Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in digital information and communication and ensure that all opportunities are available for people with disabilities. We are seeking an enthusiastic intern to create accessible content and develop new, innovative graphic design products using the Adobe Creative Cloud.

If you join our team, you will work in the related fields of accessibility, graphic design, and communication. All federal online materials are required to be Section 508 compliant, so you would have the opportunity to develop essential design skills that would serve you in any field. Working with our team of science educators, program managers, and communicators, you can also put your creative skills to work developing new graphic materials to educate people on scientific topics spanning from the surface of the sun to the bottom of the ocean.

With your help, we will better connect with our audiences, helping them understand the world around them through our educational resources. In the process, we hope you gain valuable and highly transferable skills centered around using digital engagement to advance science and education.
