Mobile River Program
The Mobile River brings a water-science-center-on-wheels and classroom curriculum directly to the schools of 7th graders in the Texas Colorado River basin. Launched in 2015 in partnership with AISD and Austin Water, the Mobile River program features interactive models and fun, educational videogames housed inside a 42-foot trailer.
Internship period: Spring and Fall semesters
- Teach hands-on water science activities in 7th grade science classes alongside educators and/or Alliance staff
- Guide students through the Mobile River Exhibit
- Enter data collected from Mobile River participants
- Occasionally assist with maintenance and upkeep of minor exhibit issues and classroom models
Location: Middle schools all over Austin! For this reason, Mobile River interns must have a reliable form of transportation.
Time commitment: 8:00am – 4:00pm, Mon-Fri. Hours vary based on the campus we are working with that week and work windows will be based off intern schedules. Must be available 15 hours per week within the above timeframe. A few evening and weekend hours may be required for community outreach events.
