As a nationally recognized non-profit, Shodor strives to improve math and science education through the effective use of modeling and simulation technologies - "computational science".
Shodor works to ensure that students are prepared to enter into computationally intensive scientific research fields through appropriate mentoring by active scientists, educators and professionals. Interns will be tasked with developing computational science resources and curriculum, editing current curriculum and website content, teaching offsite and summer workshops, and a variety of other related tasks. As interns, students will contribute their skills toward developing educational materials that will then be launched on Shodor's websites and used by educators and students as tools to improve math and science education. In addition, interns often teach off-site workshops for local organizations to utilize the tools they have helped to develop.
Shodor is seeking students passionate about education, computational science, and engineering. Previous knowledge in computational modeling tools, programming languages, and web design is preferred. Shodor is also seeking education majors with experience in developing lesson plans, knowledge of different teaching philosophies, and experience in the classroom.
