Greenwich High School Students Complete Spring Internships at SoundWaters

Two Greenwich High School students have completed spring internships at SoundWaters, the region’s leader in climate science education.

Annie Clark and Lucas Vincent spent five weeks at the organization’s Coastal Education Center at Cove Island Park in Stamford.

The GHS seniors were part of a larger group of spring interns from several area high schools who, instead of attending classes for the final weeks of their high school careers, did internships to experience a real-world business environment.

At SoundWaters, the interns worked every day alongside and under the guidance of SoundWaters professional educators, teaching the science of Long Island Sound to more than 2,000 pre-school, elementary and middle school students from schools across the region.

The interns helped students in classroom and lab settings, as well as on the beach and in boats on Holly Pond where young students do field work.

“SoundWaters is a great organization and this internship gave me some great experience. It was fun to help other students and to learn so much as well,” said Annie Clark, who will be attending University of Southern California in the fall.

The SoundWaters High School Internship Program is a model for professional development and environmental stewardship.

“Our interns develop their job and leadership skills on a daily basis as they perform scientific experiments, aquarium maintenance and assist with our STEM programs, reaching over 100 students each day,” said Christina Genz, SoundWaters Director of Education. “The SoundWaters intern program is a powerful learning experience.”

SoundWaters prepares the next generation for their future.  With our climate in crisis, we teach tomorrow’s leaders the science they will need.  With Long Island Sound as our classroom, we create love and respect for the natural world.  As a matter of justice, we open the water to all.  As a matter of urgency, we work to protect our common home.
