FUTURE SCIENCE LEADERS COUNSELORS-IN-TRAINING+
Science enthusiasts entering grades 7 – 9 are invited to apply for the Future Science Leaders Counselor-in-Training+ (FSL CIT+) program. Participants will spend a portion of each day as a CIT alongside our Young Scientist or Itty Bitty summer campers assisting camp staff, leading hands-on science activities, and providing companionship and care for campers. In addition, FSL CITs will be given leadership roles delivering museum programming, developing digital media pieces about camp activities, participating in scientific research projects, and the options to design new science mini-golf holes or engage with our water and land animals here in the museum.
