The Science Adventure School is a 4-day, 3-night outdoor science school serving West Virginia’s youth. We integrate adventure sports-driven STEM curriculum with hands-on, engaging environmental lessons. Through experiential education, we inspire inquiry, instill confidence, and empower the leaders of tomorrow. STEM instructors deliver lessons from our innovative Science Behind the Sport program, helping students explore the engineering, physics, and math that make their arrows hit a target and keep their BMX bikes upright. Lessons are short, activity-based, and hands-on. For example, students who have just tried rock climbing might rest while learning about the muscles that they used to climb. After the anatomy lesson, they'll partner up to make their own nylon rope, learning how climbing rope’s construction and elasticity give it strength, before heading back to the climbing wall for round two. Because students get to immediately put the fundamental principles of STEM into practice, they discover the best possible answers to the question, “How will we actually use this stuff in real life?”
The applicant must, at a minimum, have the following experience/qualification: Post-secondary education and/or equivalent contemporary knowledge in STEM Friendly personality with the ability to connect and communicate effectively with youth Willingness to live and work in an outdoor setting that requires moderate physical activity Attention to organization, time management, and risk management Excellent organizational skills, time-management skills, and risk management skills Passion for science, education, and creative thinking Ability to pass a federal background check
