OneStar: Hill Country Science Mill Summer Camp VISTAs
 
 
 
The Hill Country Science Mill began offering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) summer camps for students entering grades 4-8 during the summer of 2015. Science Mill camps focus on inspiring students to see STEM as fun and relevant to their lives, and ultimately encourage students to see themselves in STEM careers. Daily activities include individual and team challenges and competitions, active problem solving, and hands-on engagement with cutting-edge technologies – all in an informal, fun environment! The Science Mill has a special focus on enrolling and serving students traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields, including low-income, minority, and first-generation students. The Science Mill strives to make camp available to all students and therefore provides tuition scholarships to a large percentage of our campers each summer. The Science Mill is seeking VISTA members to assist in the implementation of these programs for students around Austin, Johnson City, and San Antonio.

Member Duties : Science Mill Summer VISTAs will serve in a fun, supportive, and fast-paced environment in Johnson City, San Antonio, and Austin. VISTAs should live for the summer in one of these cities and be willing to travel to the others as needed. The Science Mill will reimburse mileage based off of its own mileage policy. VISTAs will receive training to cover how to logistically run a summer camp, implement exciting and fun STEM curriculum, work with amazing and diverse students, and effectively work in a team environment. VISTAs will get to be part of the Science Mill’s exciting, start-up environment and play an important role in the growth and scaling of our incredibly successful summer camp programs. Summer VISTAs will also have the opportunity to assist in developing and refining curriculum for new programs that are in line with inquiry-based education practices.
